Active directory on domain controller after DNS server crash

    Pregunta

  • I had 2 servers. One was an old 2000 and the new one is 2003 with a working active directory. Both were setup as domain controllers The windows 2000 server crashed and was the dns server. The active directory still seems to be working although it takes a full minute to log people into a work station now I assume because of the no DNS server. I had to hard set the dns for the work stations to my IP's address to give them internet access. Do I load dns server onto the 2003 server now that the other is gone and will that mess up my active directory that is currently still working on that server?

  • You need DNS in order for AD to function properly. You should install DNS on your remaining DC, create AD-integrated forward and reverse lookup zones and set their replication scope to all domain controllers in the domain. Make sure that all domain computers (including the remaining DC) piont to the new DNS server as their primary (and only) DNS server. You might also need to restart Netlogon server on the DC and re-register domain member computers.
    Once DNS zones are populated, clean up AD by following http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555846/en-us
    Install/promote anothe DC as soon as possible...

  • My apology for jumping in on this, but I have a similar question to your answer.
    I have two DC/DNS AD Integrated, is it required to have DNS AD Integrated on a DC? My production network is Win2k3, I would like to migrate DHCP off the DC/DNS AD Integrated server, but I am being ask to uninstall DNS AD Integrated from the server.
