8.6 Configuring a BIND Name Server as a Slave to a Microsoft DNS Server
You want to configure a BIND name server
as a slave to a Microsoft DNS Server.
Configure the BIND name server as a
slave for the zones you want to load from the Microsoft DNS Server,
using the Microsoft DNS Server's address in the
zones' masters substatements.
On the Microsoft DNS Server, make sure
the name server doesn't include WINS or WINS-R
records in zone transfers to your BIND slave.
(You're adding a WINS record when you configure a
Microsoft DNS Server to look up names using a WINS server if it
can't find them in a zone, and a WINS-R record when
you configure the name server to use a NETBIOS query to help with
reverse mapping.) These records are included in zone transfers unless
you check the Do not replicate this record
checkbox on the WINS tab of the
zone's Properties window in the
DNS Console (for Windows 2000) or the Settings only affect
local server checkbox on the WINS
Lookup tab of the zone's
Properties window in DNS Manager (for Windows NT
Remember to ask the administrator of
the zone to add an NS record for the name server, assuming you want
remote name servers to query it. If you don't want
the name server listed in an NS record, you can still ask the
administrator to configure his Microsoft DNS Server to send your name
server NOTIFY messages for the slave zones.
