DNS and Active Directory....
Posted on 2004-10-20
Currently here is what I understand.
My Domain server has AD and DNS installed.
When setting up DNS i gave it my ISP's DNS IP's.
My workstation is set for DCHP with grabs all LAN IP's and ISP's DNS automatically correctly.
I log into the AD Server fine.
Now, my question is this. Why do I need DNS Installed on my AD Server? Why is it required?
It's really not doing anything.
I do know that I can manually assign my Server's IP address to my workstations and still go online because I did enable DNS to look at my ISP's public IP address.
Is there a clear cut reason why AD needs to be installed on the server? I don't see it really doing anything else.
