Forward lookup zone not updating
Specify the name or IP address in the Master DNS Servers page of the New Zone Wizard (Figure D).If you get an error indicating that the transfer could not take place and your master server is running Windows, make sure that the server to which you're attempting to transfer the zone is allowed to initiate the transfer.Figure A gives you a look at the Name Servers tab on an Active Directory-integrated zone on a server running Windows Server 2008.If you are migrating from a system that uses standard DNS zones, things get a little more complicated — but not horribly difficult.The two types of standard zone servers you may encounter are: In order to migrate your DNS zone data to a Windows Server 2008 computer, you will need to have a functioning standard primary server; you will also need to make the new Windows Server 2008 DNS server a standard secondary server in that zone by creating a new standard secondary zone on that server.
Standard DNS zones operate in a single master arrangement where only one DNS server has the master writable copy of the DNS zone data; all other servers have read-only copies.
On the server with the master records, right-click the zone and choose Properties.
On the Zone Transfers tab, provide the IP address of the server on which you just created a secondary zone and click OK.
In this article, I will discuss ways in which you can achieve this goal.
There are two ways you can migrate your DNS services to Windows Server 2008 — although one is definitely better than the other.
