stubzone test environment RRS feed

  • Question

  • guys,

    i would like to create a teste environment for subzone testing purposes. Do i need to create 2 DC servers with ipaddesses in a different segment(like 192.168.10.10 and 172.16.10.10) and with different domainnames or can i create and test a stubzone in my regular test environment(192.168.1.10 dc)

    thanks for the advice

    No, you don't need, you need to have a master DNS server for stubzone.

    Please follow the link below to understand requirement before deploying stubzone:

  • Hi John,

    Many thansk for the reply. About the provided link, it doesnt give me that much information.

    Let me give you an example. I got a small domain with one dnsserver(DC controller). Lets say i would like to find out how a stubzone works, do i need to add a second DC with dns to my domain and add the stubzone on the newly created dns server?

  • Hi Enlil,

    Sorry for my misunderstanding.

    Stubzone will only copy NS records and glue A host records from master DNS server, it will be queried like local NS records

    Please check the article below to understand stubzone:

    Understanding Zone Types

    https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc771898(v=ws.11).aspx

    If there have been many domains or LANs, you could deploy them to achieve Load Balanced of DNS server.

    Best Regards

    So i can create a DNSServer, lets called it mydomain.com with ip 192.168.10.10 and i create a stubzoneserver for  zone1.mydomain.com with ip 192.168.10.11 thats pointing to the 10.10 dnsserver?

  • Hi Enlil,

    >>zone1.mydomain.com with ip 192.168.10.11 thats pointing to the 10.10 dnsserver?

    Yes, you could configure 10.10 dns server to be master DNS server of stub zone.

    Best Regards
