I have these domains:
company.com a.company.com b.company.com c.company.com
Sub domains "a" and "b" are under the same zone of
company.com in the GUI (albeit with an extra dot in the hostname field). The zone
c.company.com is separate from the zone that hosts
When I delegated a secondary/slave to "company.com" I don't see any NS record or any records for
Should a secondary of
company.comzone (that has
b) include NS records for
c? (I can't resolve anything under
What is the expected value of the NS for
c.company.comin this case before and after delegation?
Is this expected behavior for DNS in general? (for secondaries to not have NS records for some subdomains)
What are my options to make
cresolve or redirect at the secondary?
I was able to get
c.company.com to resolve at the NS for
company.com if I created a stub zone (a Windows 2003 feature) for
c.company.com. I had to do this for each stand alone secondary.
My intent is to get a better understanding of the problem, that is platform agnostic, and prevent this from happening again in the future.
