Hi All,I configured Infoblox DNS Appliances as Grid Master and member mode, and import the zone details and make one zone for testing of Authoritative response, but when I was trying to do nslookup and whenever i put server , then it replies with 2 sec delays i.e. dns timeout and same for the record response.Please can any one suggest in that.Thanks...Jay

could there be a firewall between the two boxes preventing you from connecting to it?

Don't use nslookup. There are long discussions about why it produces false negatives. The delay is due to nslookup trying to resolve RRsets that aren't related to your query. (look at a packet capture to see for yourself). Use 'Dig' instead and you will probably see the delay go away. (and dig will tell you the /real/ response time)

It might be worth checking if the zone is assigned to a member that has dns running. This is configured in the zone properties.
