Indentify primary DNS server in AD

Folks

Probably a fairly trivial question but for the life of me I can't seem to find an easy answer.

I have just "inherited" the management of a fairly complex - and undocumented - AD infrastructure.

Is there any easy way to locate where is the "master" DNS server in the infrastructure (I sure hope there only one :) ?

Any suggestion most welcome

Regards

If it is active directory intergrated, you don't really have a master DNS.
Hi,

If your domain infrastructure is 2k, 2003 or 2008, if it is AD integrated. Then there wont be any master DNS in that...!

All can be a master..!

If it is not AD integrated and using a stand alone then you will have Primary DNS and secondary DNS...!

Hope this helps your question...!

Regards,
Prem
