Can I configure DNS after it is alread running and popluated on a domain controller?
Posted on 2008-11-14
I set up a new Win2k Advances Server domain controller a few months ago and have DNS running and populated on it for about 30 domains. I realized after the fact that I never 'configured DNS' on the server. In other words, when I go to the DNS and click on the server, it shows in the window 'Configure the DNS Server'.
When I am viewing DNS in the other domain controller, and try to change SOA to the other 'not-configured' server, it does not show under 'browse' and reverts back if I just type in the name.
So, can I safely configure DNS at this point? Will it remove all of the entries?
Thanks in advance!
