External DNS Servers on a Windows 2003 Server - Where do I input the IP Address?
Posted on 2005-03-03
I have a pretty simple setup, two HP servers both with windows 2003 and some other member servers also running windows 2003 & 2000.
Right now I have all the workstations that are in the domain set to DHCP
My main File server is named FS-1 and it has active directory, dns & dhcp configured on it, FS-2 is my exchange server and it's IP is hard coded to 192.168.100.3 and I have pointed the DNS to 192.168.100.2 which is the IP for FS-1
In FS-1 I hard coded the IP to 192.168.100.2 and I pointed the DNS to 192.168.100.1 which is my linksys router.
in my linksys router I have it configured for a static IP that I got from my ISP and two DNS servers of 126.96.36.199 & 188.8.131.52
Is this the correct way of pointing the servers to my ISP's external DNS servers?
Should I be hard coding the External DNS servers of 184.108.40.206 & 220.127.116.11 someplace else within Windows 2003?
Basically I just want to know what you experts do, Does everybody else do it this way?
TIA for all the info,
