I'm having some troubles trying got the isilon smartconnect load balancing working. I was able to do this on a BIND dns server just fine. On the BIND server all I did was forward any request going to nas1.xyz.com to go to 10.x.x.x. I tried setting up the same forward on infoblox and when I do a lookup against nas1.xyz.com I get server failed. I even tried to use delegation zone as well and get the same results. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Some questions / troubleshooting steps to start with:
Is xyz.com a populated zone or is nas1.xyz.com the only FQDN?
Is nas1 a DNS record or sub zone with all queries against the nas1.xyz.com zone being forwarded?
If nas1 is a "Forward Zone" then check the settings to make sure the remote name server and local member that is forwarding are properly configured
Try doing a packet capture and/or enable query/response logging to see the query flow that's happening. This would see who is dropping the ball in the path.
Hope this helps you out.
