How do i add a Secondary DNS to my network with Windows 2003?

By jtaggart ·
Does the server need Active Directory running on it to be a DNS server?
Or do i need to add the 2nd server to the current domain and then just have it be a backup?

Secordry DC

What you can do is add another DC and use the DNS service on that. So you have a backup server of ur AD. If One DC goes down you have anohter and your whole network doesnt go down

do you want to know how to add a secondary DNS server?

or do you want to know if you need AD running to be a DNS server?

The answer to the second is: no, you don't need a DC and/or Active Directory to run a DNS server.
