  • Number of DNSīs

    I am installing 2 domain controllers in 2 offices that are connected by a high speed link, one DC per office. Is it a good idea to also make them DNS both of them?

    Regards.

      Agree with Wullie - you can never have too few DNS servers and with multiple offices having a local one will be useful if the inter-site network goes down
      Remember to have them all available to clients via DHCP or advanced settings for static IP addresses
