Hello,

I have the following Setup:

SERVER A:
Windows 2000 setup with Active Directory and DNS acts as the Domain Controller.

SERVER B:
Windows 2003 - Setup as another Domain Controller for the Domain.

SERVER A had it's last breathe but I was able to set SERVER B as another DC before it died.  I was not able to backup DNS.  Now, I have a Domain Controller but no DNS for clients and servers to use.  Anybody can point me to the right direction on how to install a new DNS for AD.

Thank You

What type of zones were you using?  Were they AD integrated zones? If they were, your DNS info is stored in Active Directory.  All you need to do is install your DNS server and it should pick up the info from AD, IF you had AD integrated zones.

Well, I just installed DNS on the new server.  Will AD automatically integrate with the new DNS Server?

Yes if you originally had AD integrated zones.  Look at your forward lookup zones after installation, you should see all your DNS records.
