Root Hints DNS
Posted on 2010-09-14
My question is about dns. I am not good at dns infrasturcture and i am hoping somebody can get me understand it.
here is my environmet. I have DOMAIN A.com which is forest root domain and DOMAIN B.com and DOMAIN C.DOMAIN B.com.
I want to use forwarders for external name resolution. i have few DNS servers i am going to forward request.
I am going to forward request from Domain B and DOMAIN C. DOMAIN B.com domain using forwarder.
my question is what i should be doing with root hints . Do i have to modify them and where. I am also planning to use forwarder in forest root domain ( DOMAIN A ) as well.
or i dont need to do anything with root hints as i am already using forwarders.
for name resolution between internal domain , i am going to use conditional forwarders.
Basically , i realy dont know what i should be doing with root hints
