Getting Access denied message while opening DNS through RSAT in Windows Server 2008 R2


  • Scenario is as below:

    I am having two domains A and B. The AD and DNS part are accessible via RSAT in servers C and D.

    The AD and DNS server components have been installed. When we tried to connect to DNS Server via RSAT, I get the message

    "Access denied "'.

    Can anyone help on this ?

  • Hello,

    are the domains in the same forest?

    Do you use an account that is member from the other domain "domain admins" security group?

    Please describe in detail your setup with DNS, trust configuration and how you like to access the other DNS server.

    Best regards
