  • Hello,

    as I see this server is also a DC.

    Use multiple NIC cards / IP addresses for DCs is not recommended as multihoming DCs is not recommended.

    Please use one IP address and disable all NIC cards except one.

    For DHCP add your domain suffix as a DHCP option.

    For alternate IP addresses, they have to be added manually and not via DHCP.

  • Hello,

    ok my xxxx.ed root domain is having some 10.1.x.x ipaddress and my new tree domain is having 192.168.3.x ipaddress but client pc's will get ipaddress through dhcp.

    Here what I have understood is that you are using two domains. If client computers of both domains are using the same subnets then here you will have problems with DHCP configuration with exactly DNS suffixes.

    so in the scope i have to mention alternate dns ipaddress ?

    Here you have to separate computers of each domain using different subnets. In each subnet enable DHCP and let DHCP servers give as DNS servers the used DNS server for the used domain (For computers of domain A, add them to subnet 1 and configure the DHCP server to send the correct DNS suffix and the used DNS servers of domain A. Similar thing with users of domain B but here use subnet 2 and add DNS servers of domain B).

     where to add my domain suffix as a dhcp option ? one doubt... 

    Proceed like I mentioned.

    after installing dns and after adding client pc's to domain then the client host records automatically updates in forward lookup zones..but how can they update in reverse lookup zone ? manually we have to add pointer records or is there any possibility to update reverse lookup zones automatically ?

    Make sure that they are using correct DNS servers and PTR records will be update automatically.
