I have several domain controllers running, one name resolves to the internal IP, where the name resolves to an external IP on the other domain controllers. I don't see any entry for the name I am querying, and I don't see the zone. What might be going on?
I will call the domain I am having trouble with foo.bar.com , and my companies domain baz.com.
Under forward lookup zones, there is no folder for bar.com. When I run
dig @mydc01 foo.bar.com I get the internal IP:
;; ANSWER SECTION: foo.bar.com. 0 IN A 10.1.1.1
When I run the same command against my other DNS servers ( ie @mydc02 ), I get the public IP and the respose with the public name servers being authorative. I have tried clearing cache, and there is no host entry. I see foo.bar.com as a cached lookup, under the root folder, com folder, bar folder. In that folder, there is Name: ( Same as parent folder), Type: Name Server, Data: Our public dns servers.
When I add +trace to dig while still having @problemServer I get the correct IP as the response.
