The Active Directory DNS owner in your organization is responsible for delegating the zone that matches the name of the regional domain to the DNS servers that are running on the domain controllers in the regional domain.

Before you create the new regional domain, delegate the DNS zone for the new Windows Server 2003 regional domain on any domain controller in the forest root domain DNS zone.

To delegate the DNS zone for the new regional domain

  1. Open the DNS snap-in from any domain controller in the forest root domain.

  2. In the console tree, right-click the forest root domainzone, and then click New Delegation.

  3. Table 8.4 lists information to complete the New Delegation Wizard, as well as sample data for delegating the DNS domain for the first two regional domain controllers in the east.trccorp.treyresearch.net domain, SEA-EAST-DC01 and SEA-EAST-DC02. Accept the default settings when no information is supplied.
