  • DHCP Router DNS Entries with Domain Controller

    Hi,


    I've set first DNS value in my router to the Domain Controller's IP yet i'm unsure if i need to set say the ISP's DNS in the second entry or just point to the Domain Controller only.


    Thanks for your help

    The normal setup is DHCP provides clients with your DNS-enabled DCs as their DNS servers, then the DCs have ISP DNS servers set up as forwarders. If you point the clients straight at the ISP DNS servers, they may end up bypassing the DCs and causing logon failures etc.
