Old NT DNS Server and New Windows 2003 Integrated DNS Server

By ray_blankenship ·
I've adopted a new in place infrastructure that has some odd behaviour with DNS. The current environment has a Win2k3 DNS Server that is integrated with AD with a forward lookup zone of mycompany.local. However, it also has a forward lookup DNS Zone of just mycompany. When I perform a nslookup the return is: server.mycompany ip/x.x.x.x (this is the DNS Server answering the request) the answer comes back in the form: client1.mycompany.local ip/x.x.x.x.

Basically it is answering from mycompany zone but resolving from the mycompany.local zone

My first question is shouldn't the name server responding be in the form of server.mycompany.local ?

Also, is the problem in the DHCP Server options for the 015 Domain Name which has a value of mycompany. Shouldn't this value be mycompany.local?

Thanks for any input.
