    I have mydomainA.com I added mydomainB.com two separate companies. Under the
    same forest different domain...i have 2 dns server in mydomainA.com...I have
    one DC and one DNS server in mydomainB.com...I have tried everything to get
    the DNS to work ive tried every zone ive ran every tool it shows as the zones
    are up and running but the test tell me that DNS is failing and my users are
    taking to long to login, im getting netlogon errors...I tried demoting the
    server and starting from stracth i get errors when trying to do this as well.
    My next step is to force remove this DC and domain and start over will that
    cause anymore issues for me, if i had to go that route?

  2. Are these Win2k3 DNS server?
    If they are add the other Domain to the conditional Forwarders list
    (Forwarders tab) with the IP of the DNS servers that resolve those domains.

    the new dns im setting up is 2003 the already existing dns servers are Wn2k,
    I don't know if that plays a part. My whole thing is I was told to set up the
    new domain DNS as a secondary zone to the already existing DNS but when i do
    that the SOA is from the mydomainA.com not mydomainB.com. Also do you suggest
    I set this up as a primary zone rather then a secondary or stub zone. Im
    really lost with this one!

  4. Let me get this straight, you are adding a new domain in an existing forest?
    The new DC is Win2k3, the existing forest and domain is a Win2k?

    The Win2k3 DNS will need a zone for its domain and a conditional forwarder
    for the Win2k domain. The Win2k DNS will need a secondary of the Win2k3
    domain. The secondary will show the Win2k3 as the SOA primary.
    This should work for both domains.

  6. Just for additional information, both DNS servers will most likely start
    logging Events like this:
    Event Type: Warning
    Event Source: DNS
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 3000
    Date: 5/3/2005
    Time: 12:09:27 PM
    User: N/A
    Computer: DC1
    Description:
    The DNS server has encountered numerous run-time events. To determine the
    initial cause of these run-time events, examine the DNS server event log
    entries that precede this event. To prevent the DNS server from filling the
    event log too quickly, subsequent events with Event IDs higher than 3000
    will be suppressed until events are no longer being generated at a high
    rate.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    These events are logged due to the numerous incremental zone transfers.
    These zone transfers are normal in a Dynamic zone, everytime a record is
    dynamically updated, it will initiate an incremental zone transfer.
