DNS installed on AD Server

I may have closed a previous question a little early.

I have a 2003 server with AD, but not DNS.

I needed to install DNS on this server, as I want two DNS servers on the network.

I went through the Add Role, and cancelled out of the Wizard.

I am uncertain of my next step.  Some research says to 'Wait', and it will automatically config itself (due to being on the same computer as AD).

Is this what I should be doing (waiting)?
Is there something I need to adjust as far as AD goes?

I am also worried I may have answered something wrong in the setup of the DNS server.

Not super clear I realize, but any help appreciated.

Thanks,

TN

No, I think this one is more specific.

No problems.

When you installed DNS - did you add it using AD Integrated DNS?

Assuming that is, that your current DNS is AD Integrated already.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I was not given that option (AD Integrated DNS).

This server had AD installed on it, but it didn't (up until 30 minutes ago) have DNS.

Do I need to modify the AD in someway?
Should I remove DNS and start again?

Please check your current DNS zones and see if they are AD Integrated.

If not - convert them to AD Integrated, then remove and re-install DNS on your new DNS server and you should automatically install AD Integrated DNS:

I went to look, and all the DNS stuff is now there on the server.  I guess 'wait' was the way to go!
