DNS and Domain Functional Level

Posted on 2004-10-28
Last Modified: 2010-04-19
Couple of questions,

1:) Just created a second domain controller and have a query about the interfaces tab. A little confused about what to put in here. Do i put the IP address of the other DC/DNS server, or itself or what does listen on all IP addresses actually mean?

2:) Is there anything major to watch out for in raising the domain functional level? i want to go from 2000 native to 2003

Many Thanks

    1- DNS server interfaces? THis just means "what addresses will I listen on" By using this you can stop people on different subnets from accessing your DNS server. This is not really useful for small networks, unless there's some split company thing happening...

    2- You can't have 2000 DC's anymore. Other than that, I can't see the big deal. There's some info in that may help you decide.
