DNS recommendations from Microsoft
Posted by Awinish on March 8, 2011
Many forum/post, often i see a question, how to configure DNS in my domain controller, is primary point to itself or secondary DNS server, is it OK to configure loopback IP & what are the best practices etc.
I would not cover everything, leave for the below link to answer for you. Few things, i would like to mention
- NEVER use public IP configured directly in the NIC either of the DC or clients.
- Public IP(ISP DNS) used for external domain name resolution,should always be configured in Forwarder of DNS servers.
