  • Hi Ngo,

    What are your parent and child domain names? Contoso and Corp respectively right? What you are going to do? Why are you adding DCs in contoso.com zone?

    Please provide more detail and clear explanation, 

    Thank you,

  • Hi,
    Please check if all DCs are installed DNS role on it. As far as I know, if the other DCs are not DNS server, there might no name server records for them in the DNS manager console.

  • Then you can add them manually,also make sure port accessibility between parent and child domain.
