DNS Server compability Server 2003 & server 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created a new server 2012 r2 server core box to put in our dmz for external dns.  The server only has secondary zones.  I copied the zone files from another dns server.  The zones imported fine, but they are not getting updates.  The primary server runs server 2003.  The errors are generic and not much help.  While banging my head against the wall, I have been trying to find if Server 2003 can even send zone transfers to Server 2012.

    >>The zones imported fine, but they are not getting updates.  The primary server runs server 2003.

    Please check if connection is correct between primary DNS server and secondary DNS server.

    Please run dcdiag /test:dns to analyze DNS issues.
