Dear Friends

I would like to implement opendns solution in a LAN with W2K3 Domain Controller. The issue is that i dont want to filter all the users. Only certain groups.
I am thinking of setting up an additional domain and setup dns forwarders on that to point to opendns and configure those certain groups to have their dns pointing on the additional domain for domain authentication.

I would like some advice please.

Regards
George

Hey George,

Setting up a separate domain sounds rather excessive. All you really need is a separate DNS server.

Both implementing a separate domain and using a separate server have the same problem though. How do you get that DNS server into the Clients IP configuration? Or were you going to create Reservations in DNS for each host and set it there?

I was thinking the same as you said regarding setting up a seperate DNS and i came up with this thought.
You gave me some hints now which i haven't considered and thank you for that.
