  • Conditional Forwarder to all DCs in one go?

    Hey guys, I got a proble/question.

    I have arround 11 DCs on different sites that I need to implement a conditional forwarder on all the DCs.
    when I try doing so , I had notice that it is only done per DNS server , hence I must do it on all DCs/DNS and it is anoying going through all the DNS servers and doing it, since it is been done on the Server and not on the Zone.
    is there a way doing a conditional forwarding that would replicate to all DNS servers in the Domain?

      There is a way doing it assuming all your DNS servers are AD Integrated.
      Unfortunately this could not be done through the UI but it could be done Using a command line.

      log onto one of your DC/DNS and type the following:
      DnsCmd DCServer /ZoneAdd Domain.com /DsForwarder xxx.xxx.xxx.xx

      DCServer = Your DC you logged onto or any other DC you would like
      Domain.com = is the domain name you want the forward (The condition)
      xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx = is the IP of where you want to forward it to.

      This command adds a Active Directory Integrated Conditional Forwarder.
      This command is needed since it is not possible adding a Active Directory Integrated Conditional Forwarder
      using the UI, using the UI would only apply on the server you are working on.

          I guess we posted at the same time, b/c I did not see your replay.

            I was able to use the GUI in Windows 2008 R2 DNS to replicate or copy DNS conditional forward entries to all other domain controllers.

            Go to DNS admin tool ... set the View to Advanced to show the Conditional Forwarders folder under a DNS server.

            To replicate and existing entry, right click on it and choose Properties. Click the Edit button, and then put a check in the box "Store this conditional forwarder in Active Directory and replicate it as follows: .... and choose All DNS servers in this domain.

            If you a creating a new forward just use the sames settings to replicate it.

            Hope that helps
