  • to USE DNS Forwarders or Not .. that is the question

    Hi,

    Could you tell me in win2k3 should I and why or why not should someone use dns forwarders.. I was always under the impression that this feature was realy meant to use for downstream servers/child domains..(spoke and wheel configs), not the companies primary domain controller / dns servers. Could you please give me your thoughts.. thanks alot.

    thanks

    DNS forwarding is used in situations where you have one big DNS and many remote DNS servers that need to resolve names that are outside their authoritive scope, such as in a parent domain and many child domains. Another scenario would be for Internet name resolution, where the main DNS might be configured to forward to your ISP's DNS servers. This is much better (in most cases) that using direct Root Hints, mostly because that way you're using a recursive query rather than iterative ones.
