Server Manager RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

        I am running 2 Windows Server 2008 R2 machines both are Domain Controllers, my SRV-1 is main DC and on Server Manager under Roles and DNS it is only showing SRV-2 (Backup DC) as the DNS Server, why is SRV-1 DNS Not listed? If I go to Admin Tools and DNS SRV-1 DNS is there.

          Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

    You need to install DNS Manager separately. It's under:

    Features

    Remote Server Administration Tools

    Role Administration Tools

    DNS Server Tools

  • Hi,

         No this answer did not help, I have been all over the web looking for a way to fix this to no avail, I will delete the question. The DNS feature is automatically installed when you create a domain controller.
