  • winddows 2003 server as AD and linux BIND as DNS

    Hi
    I am very new in the world of linux and domain concepts
    I have a Linux configured as DNS for my office clients.
    I have a windows 2003 server Configured as Active Directory.(it's not authenticating users till today, it's just sitting there with Active directory installed)
    now i would like to join office clients to 2003server active directory
    domain. In clients tcp/ip settings i specifed linux dns server's ip.
    and the client is saying that, cannot find the domain name controller.
    i searched internet and found this quote some where
    I have to echo the concern that the others haved shared about non-AD DNS. The best approach would be to configure your DCs as AD-Integrated DNS servers for the internal hosts with forwarding configured to the Linux DNS for the external resolutions. It's secure, it lacks the administrative headache that you a heading towards, yet still allows you to use your Linux DNS.
    and i didn't understood this part

    ok there is no problem in making windows 2003 server AD-Integrated DNS server. but how do i forward to the linux DNS for external resolutions
    Thankyou
    i read this thread thrice but it all went above my head
