I have been running a Windows 2003 Server with AD and DNS for about 6 months. I am searching for a good guide/link that will describe how to set AD and DNS on W2K3 when it is behind a NAT "firewall".
Since this is a common small business setup I would THINK that there would be tons of info on this but to date I have not found anything that REALLY addresses the issues head on.
My AD and DNS set-up works but not well. The clients use the W2K3 server as its primary DNS and DNS forwards the query requests properly (i.e., people can use the Internet). However - there are tons of DNS subsystem errors in the DNS event viewer. It also takes 4 minutes for Windows 2000 clients to logon and XP clients 2 minutes to logon. Very frustrating to users and this sysadmin.
Bottom line: I need a guide that addresses how to set-up up AD and DNS services on a NAT LAN.
Any ideas would be great.
