Secondary Domain Controller DNS


D

Dave Onex

Hi Folks;

I have domain controller installed and I just promoted a second machine as a
secondary domain controller. On the second machine should all the DNS zones
be set to secondary? Or should it still have an Active Directory integrated
zone?

Thanks!

Hello Dave,

Use Active directroy integrated zones. Easiest part for configuration and
replication. At the beginning set the primary dns on the NIC only to the
running DNS server and give it time fro reeplication. Afterwords you can
change the NIC settings.

Best practise for DNS configuration:
