-------------------------------------------------------Hi Ara,
We ran in to this a couple of years ago, while working on some DC
problem. Microsoft recommendation was, the DC should not point to itself
as primary DNS. In other words, when you have more than 1 DNS servers,
always point to the other DC as the primary DNS. Although, I am not sure
what difference this makes.
 


Regards,

-------------------------------------------------------Hi everyone,
Would you help to clarify this? I did some search online and on
Microsoft and opinions are different.
Let's say you have 2 of 2003 sp2 domain controllers, DC1 as primary
master and also a DC2. What is the proper setting on DNS on network on
each server?
Scenario 1:
DC1: First pointing to 127.0.0.1, second pointing to DC2
DC2: First pointing to DC1, second pointing to 127.0.0.1
Scenario 2:
DC1: first pointing to 127.0.0.1, second point to DC2
DC2: first point to 127.0.0.1. Second point to DC1
Thank you for help
