  • Hello,


    If you are attempt to install DNS role to setup a new AD-Integrated Zone on this DC, then please follow the instruction provided by Sachin. If anything unclear, feel free to follow up with us.


    Otherwise, do you mean that you have a DC which is also a DNS server, you would like to convert the existing Primary DNS Zone to a AD-Integrated Zone?

    For Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2000, refer to:

    How To Convert DNS Primary Server to Active Directory Integrated
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/816101


    For Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2, you can configure the Primary DNS zone for use with the AD DS.

  • Install/Add DNS server role on the domain controller and follow these steps-

    1. On the Domain Controller log on with the account that has administrative privileges (most likely Administrator).
    2. Click on Start button and from the menu go to Administrative Tools.
    3. From the sub-menu select DNS snap-in.
    4. From the opened snap-in expand the tree by clicking on plus sign opposite to the computer name.
    5. Expand Forward Lookup Zones tree.
    6. Right-click on your domain name which is displayed and from the menu select Properties.
    7. From the Properties page ensure that you are on the General tab and click on Change button opposite to Type.
    8. At the bottom of Change Zone Type box check the check box that says Store the zone in Active Directory (available only if DNS server is a domain controller) and click on Ok button.
    9. On the confirmation box click on Yes button to confirm and click on Ok button to accept your configuration.
