SBS 2003 and DNS settings
Posted on 2006-04-24
I work for a small company (10-20 employees) and we are running SBS 2003. I would like to know what the ideal configuration for DHCP/DNS would be. We have a cable modem which feeds to a router which feeds to our SBS server, and additional servers will be added at a later time.
Currently, the DHCP and DNS are handled by the SBS server. The NIC is setup with the static IP address given by our ISP and it's external DNS are configured to point to our ISP. However, if we need to restart the server, this causes our employees to lose the internet until the server comes back up. (DNS is down) So, I was thinking if we moved DNS to the router that would cure the problem? Would that be the ideal situation though?
