Second Domain controller for a domain, what is the DNS IP it should be pointing to?
Posted on 2006-06-16
I already have a windows 2003 domain controller, and I want to install a second domain controller,
One things that making me confuse and do not understand is that for the second domain controller 's NIC card,
what is the DNS setting I should place.
First DC :
IP : 192.168.45.100 /24
Gateway : 192.168.45.254 /24
DNS 1 : 192.168.45.100
DNS 2 : 192.168.45.200
Second DC :
IP : 192.168.45.200 /24
gaeway : 192.168.45.254 /24
DNS 1 : <not sure > ?
DNS 2 : <not sure> ?
Actually I am trying to fulfil the following conduction, but I trying to read about notes, but not enable to find the right
explanation and how it suppose to be .
1. Such that, if there is a power failure in First DC, my workstations will able to solve DNS request from Second DC.
2. Such that, I add a new DNS entry in Second DC, it will replicate over to First DC.
Adding new DNS entry in first DC, it will replicate over to Second DC.
I had read technotes from microsoft technet, and osme related website, but none of then, I can find exmaples or sample, that explain by steps that what should I place in the DNS1 and DNS2 of my Second DC
