DNS Forwarding correct method

I'm doing some testing in my Lab.

I have  a Authoritative Forward Zone

I want this zone to answer queries only to * and nothing to the internet. And this works fine.

I also created another zone, that forward queries to anything thats not in * (or that is my objective) to google DNS Servers.

So on the Grid Member, I disabled recursion, since I don't want Infoblox to do recursive queries.

On DNS Grid Properties I also disabled recursion.

From my understanding, regarding the forwarding, there are 2 methods.

1- Create a forward zone, assign google's as forwarder and assign a grid member,

----This didn't work, I get a "REFUSED" response when I query the internet

2- On the DNS Grid Properties, add a forwrarder which is Google', still didn't work.

The interesting thing is, I can go query the internet, without both options, if I only allow recursion on the grid member. Which isn't what I want.

I want infoblox to act just like a home router and forward queries it doesn't have to the internet.

Appreciate the help.

You'll need to enable recursion in order to do forwarding.
