  • How to add a Secondary DNS server with AD Integrated Zones on Windows 2008 R2

    Hello,
    I tried to install a secondary server to have a redundant server with DNS role.
    DNS1 et DNS2: windows 2008 R2
    The zones have been replicated automatically. When I make a changement in dns2 I can see it on dns1 but I have problem with the resolution name.

    Nslookup tests on dns1:
    > pc.domain.loc
    Serveur : dns1.domain.loc
    Address: 10.1.1.1
    Name: pc.domain.loc
    Adress: 10.1.2.1


    Nslookup tests on dns2:
    > pc.domain.loc
    Serveur : dns2.domain.loc
    Address: 10.1.1.2

    *** dns2.domain.loc ne parvient pas ŕ trouver pc.domain.loc
    : Non-existent domain

    I read a lot of issues like this but nothing works for me.

    Thanks for your help

    Valérie

    Have you added a PTR record?

      I have the sames records on the 2 servers. The replication works fine.

        Your nslookup shows that dns1 and dns2 have the same ip address. Is that a typo?

          sorry it's a mistake:

          Nslookup tests on dns1:
          > pc.domain.loc
          Serveur : dns1.domain.loc
          Address: 10.1.1.1
          Name: pc.domain.loc
          Adress: 10.1.2.1


          Nslookup tests on dns2:
          > pc.domain.loc
          Serveur : dns2.domain.loc
          Address: 10.1.1.2

          *** dns2.domain.loc ne parvient pas ŕ trouver pc.domain.loc
          : Non-existent domain

            You don't have the reverse lookup zones replicated.

                Well add the relevant PTR record.

                Don't believe me

                Can't Find Server Name when Starting Nslookup.exe
                When starting the Nslookup.exe utility, the following error may occur:

                *** Can't find server name for address w.x.y.z: Non-existent domain


                This error occurs when there is no PTR record for the name server's IP address. When Nslookup.exe starts, it does a reverse lookup to get the name of the default server. If no PTR data exists, this error message is returned. To correct make sure that a reverse lookup zone exists and contains PTR records for the name servers.

                  I had verified the PTR record exists.

                  Another thing, I have paused some zones on SRV1 that I didn't use but they aren't in pause on SRV2.

                    Simplest solution is to remove the DNS role from SVR2, then add it back in again and let things replicate

                      Thanks.

                      I completely reinstalled the server yesterday and I have the same issues.
