Here is a quick overview of the setup. It is a Public and Private network using 2 VLANs. On the Private VLAN, there is a Windows 2008 R2 Server and a Mac OS X 10.8 Server each running directory services. DHCP is handed out from The Mac Server. DNS is running on Mac and Windows Server for directory services.

Here is the issue, The only machines that can connect to the respective domain is the ones connected to the server listed first in the DHCP DNS list. So if the list looks like Mac Server, Windows Server, Public DNS the Mac Users can connect but windows users can't. If you switch the Windows and Mac servers in the list then Windows users can connect and mac users can't. Windows users need to access shares on the mac server.

I know there is a simple fix to solve this, but I am not familiar with DNS server setup, Could some help? Thanks.

Does each one have itself as the primary


Windows server
192.168.1.1 (itself)
192.168.1.2 (secondary)
Any external DNS

Mac server
192.168.1.2 (itself)
192.168.1.1 (secondary)
Any external DNS

Are you talking about Primary Zone?

Here is what I see on the mac server:
Primary Zone: Win server name
Win server name machine
Win server name mail exchanger
Win server name nameserver
Primary Zone: Mac server name
Mac server name machine
Mac server name nameserver
Reverse Zone: 10.168.192.in-addr.arpa
Mac server name reverse mapping
Mac server name reverse mapping
Mac server name nameserver
Here is the Windows server
Forward Lookup Zones
Win server name
Is this what you are asking? Thanks.

Ok reading this again, I think I realized what your were asking. Were you asking about the static DNS addresses that was setup for each NIC? If so, I had the windows server setup that way, the mac was itself, then the 2 external DNS, the only way it knew to transfer was it was setup in the forwarding DNS section.

After changing this, it seams to be working, the real test will be once I attempt to login to the windows machine I just configured, it is currently updating I will let you know how this goes. Thanks.
