Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Let's say I control the example.com zone but not the abc.example.com. "abc.example.com" is controlled by another admin so I need to forward any requests for that subdomain to his BIND server.

example.com is running on Win2k3 while abc.example.com is running on BIND.

No, just providing the link in case someone coming by in the future wants more information. Be nice. :) –  Justin Scott Apr 17 '11 at 22:28

Create an NS record in the example.com zone for the name abc, pointing to the BIND server.

I dont see that option under win2k3. I wonder if "delegation" is what I need. –  luckytaxi Apr 15 '11 at 14:54
Sorry; yes. Delegation is the name they use for creating an NS record (which is how it'll show up once it's created). –  Shane Madden Apr 15 '11 at 15:03
yep, works fine. thank you. –  luckytaxi Apr 15 '11 at 15:09
