DNS for Window 2008 RODC

AXISHK used Ask the Experts™
Is it possible to change the DNS for our Window 2008 RODC ? Currently, the RODC use the DNS for local DNS of the Window DC and I wants to use the ISP DNS in case the local RODC couldn't resolve any host name. Once I change the DNS to the internet DNS, will it affect the internal local name resolution ?

You would obviously need to leave the DNS IPs on the network card configured to query the server itself and probably a secondary of another DC at HO, but setting forwarders in the DNS server service will not affect your AD DNS. The forwarders are only used when the DNS server service doesn't know about the domain the client wants to query e.g. www.microsoft.com.
