create a child domain and then delegate the DNS namespace to child DC

By sachinrnaik ·
I am trying dns delegation, I have installed active directory domain xyz.local on windows server 2003 server name SERVER1. Ip address is 192.168.0.3. Preferred dns set it itself. The primay dns zone name is xyz.local. Then I create a child domain child.xyz.local on another windows server 2003 computer name SERVER2 using dcpromo. The ip address is 192.168.0.133. Preferred dns set it itself, alternate dns set to 192.168.0.3.

Now in xyz.local zone 1 folder "child" is added. Now I am trying to delegate child dns namespace to domain controller SERVER2. To do this I open dns console in Server1. Then in forward lookup zone xyz.local Right click on xyz.local and in new delegation typed parent in "delegated domain " box, then in "Specify name & Ip address of the DNS server u want to have host the delegated zone " I click on add then click on browse and add SERVER2 host record in that parent folder when I click on finish an error "A DNS domain or delegation by this name already exists. To change an existing delegation, right click on the delegation and select properties. To change a DNS domain into a delegation, delete the domain and then create the delegation." appears. Please tell me whether I am doing it in a right way.

I have also tried using Microsoft article http://support.microsoft.com/?id=255248 .

I tried Manually Create a Delegation for the Child Domain on the Parent DNS Server
I right-click the parent then click on New Delegation, and then click Next.
then I type the domain name for the child domain, and then click Next.
Then I have to add the child DNS server to host the new zone, Here which dns server should I add.

Please guide me the correct way to delegate the dns zone to child domain controller.

Thanks.

If you create the DNS zone on a particular DNS Server

by CG IT In reply to create a child domain and ...

you can not delegate that zone to the same DNS server.

Your explanation says that you created a child domain on Server 2 , then you say your trying to delegate that zone to DNS services on Server 2. you want to delegate the child domain DNS zone to server 1 DNS services so that you have redundancy for the child domain.
