  • [DNS] Zone fails to load

    Every day i have to set out to manually reload a specific zone on one of our trusted domains otherwise the web based access to our proprietary software does not work.

    I have checked eventlogs, which are simply empty. I have re setup the transfer zones and permissions with no luck, same problem still exists.

    Im hopeless, hope that you guys might have some ideas





    EDIT: i forgot to add, running two Windows 2000 Domain Controllers with DNS loaded and the trusted domain is a Windows 2003 single DC domain.

    Are you allowing Zone transfers to "Any server" or to specific ones?
    Wouldn't you consider AD integrated DNS zones instead.

      I am allowing transfers to anywhere.

      i cant use AD Integrated Zones as our inhouse software cant cope with that. Really shouldnt be a problem not having integrated zones as it has always worked perfectly.

        It shouldn't be a problem not using AD integrated Zones but it is better securitywise. And also it's not good practice to allow zone transfers to Any servers.
        Anyway, have you tried the two other options to Allow zone transfers to the servers in the NS list and to the following servers and see if that makes any difference.

          Well i have tried these options, in fact these are the preferred settings but still the problem exists. After a change i give it about a day to see if it fails. Unfortunately it failed again this morning :S
