When doing an automatic testing on DNS server under Monitoring\n\n1. A simple query against this DNS server - Passes\n2. A recursive query to other DNS servers - Fail\n\nMy scenario is:\n\nThis domain controller is within a private network and does not talk to the\noutside world.\n\n\nMy second question is there are no DNS logs generated and if I do a stop and\nrestart of services I can see some logs other than that there are no ERRORS\nalso.\n\nMy third question is, I am trying to establish a TRUST relationship between\nthis DC which is Win2K3 and another DC which is Win2K. I cannot establish a\ntrust. I have added LMHOSTS file and have added the other server and IP\nAddress to the LMHOSTS file and am waiting for the other side to add it to\ntheir DC's so that it will work. But, just posting this question prior to\nthis.
