Should Exchange be included in AD DNS Zone Name Servers?

Greetings,

Should my Exchange 2007 server be included in the Name Servers of the each Zone within Active Directory DNS?

The Exchange 2007 does not have DNS server installed.

(It is currently listed there and I'm pretty sure I should remove it.)

Regards,

.adam.

Yes, you have to. Other wise where will you store MX records and how will you point .local records with external address to resolve name resolution.

its not necessary to have DNS server on your exchange. if your exchange server doesn't have DNS service and list in DNS server then you can remove it from DNS server list.  but your DNS server must have dns records/entires for your exchange server

Okay, I'll leave it in place.  I had thought a previous IT Admin had put the information there.
