I've done research on this topic and have come across 2 different ways of doing it. Has anyone here had a experiance they can share with me?
Company is going towards Windows 2003 AD Setup (Previously Novell). They have 300+ users in the building.
Who will handle dns? Now heres the scenarios...
The old machine handling DNS was a Unix Machine. They would like to get rid of this.
After some research, I initially thought that the AD Server having DNS installed with external lookups (Through ISP) would be sufficient. But I also have read that this may not be a good idea if there are that many users.
I have read to have a seperate server with its only purpose being DNS.
Has anyone been in this situation before? If the AD is handling all the DNS will it cause problems or slow down?
Is it wiser to have a dedicated machine for DNS that is registered to retrieve public dns tables or is the AD server with external lookups good enough for this enviornment.
Thanks for your time.
