am trying dns delegation, I have installed active directory domain name "parent.local" on windows server 2003 server name SERVER1. Ip address is 192.168.0.3. Preferred dns set it itself. The active directory integrated dns zone name is "parent.local". Then I create a child domain child.parent.local on another windows server 2003 computer name SERVER2 using dcpromo. The ip address is 192.168.0.13. Preferred dns set it itself, alternate dns set to 192.168.0.3. 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 parent.local Right click on parent.local and in new delegation typed "child" in "delegated domain " box, then in "Specify name & Ip address of the DNS server I specify the name & Ip addres of SERVER2 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. Can I delegate dns namespace to domain controller in child domain. Please guide me the correct way to delegate the dns zone to child domain controller.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try creating the child zone on the parent server. Once created, create a NS record in the “child” zone on the primary server that points to the address of the other server. Depending on the DNS Implementation you may also need to create a SOA record in the zone, but I do not think this will be needed in your environment.
