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.

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!
