  • DNS issues in 2003 AD DNS

    Hello,

    I am facing one strange issue with DNS in server 2003.

    I have AD domain with name abc.com. and DNS is AD integrated.

    after opening DNS console under forward lookup zone under abc.com. I did right click and selected "New Domain". and did put XYZ. so now the new subdomain became XYZ.ABC.COM.

    and then i created A record with name test1 in XYZ folder under abc.com zone.

    but whenever i ping test1.xyz its failing to get the FQDN as test1.xyz.abc.com.

    Can anyone please help me with this.

    cheers

    so if you go to a command prompt and type in

    ping test1.zyx.abc.com it doesn't resolve ?

      Hey Thanks Tehcamel,

      It does resolve with full FQDN typed but we have an application which uses only test1.xyz at one of our site this thing works but on new one its doesn't.

      I have checked suffix and search list the domain name is there but when it ping with test1.xyz it doesnt resolve it with test1.xyz.abc.com.

      I don't know where is the mistake.

      Cheers.

        The client only appends the suffix to a single label name.
        e.g. "ping burrito" will append abc.com. Otherwise this would be very annoying.
        e.g. "ping www.google.com" would turn into www.google.com.abc.com.

        Either change the suffix of that machine to xyz.abc.com and set the application to resolve "test1" or set it to the fqdn "test1.xyz.abc.com".

          If you need it to resolve as test.xyz then why not just create a forward lookup zone at the same level as abc.com called xyz and populate it? Your DNS zones would look like this:

          ABC.com
          ----------->host1.abc.com
          ----------->host2.abc.com
          XYZ
          ----------->test.xyz

            What if you create a conditional forwarder with the xyz in the same DNS server.

              wait, so, if you open a command prompt and type

              ping test1.xyz.abc.com it works

              and if you open a command prompt and do

              ping test1.xyz it fails to work ?

              Add xyz.abc.com to your search suffix list. then try "ping test1"


              "ping test1.xyz" won't work - shouldn't work.
