Hi there!
We are running windows 2000 server domain.  Can we have more than one DNS servers running in our network?.  Will it cause any problem as we already have one DNS running.

One DNS period, for production. But make a secondary and, if large support, a tertiary as well - for backup.

For problems, just think of the support that would be required.  All it is, is a lookup table required to find servers by name, and that is not something that will change, outside of very special circumstance.
