Active Directory & DNS

By nrodriguez ·
I just installed ADS and I need to get to the internet. I cannot get out to the internet with my internal DNS.(192.168.1.200) Apparently I need the primary DNS to be the local DNS machine for ADS. Therefore, my primary rejects any request for outside domains.

How do I get the primary to "forward" my request to a secondary outside server?

Hi,
You are on the right track. You need to
go to Administrative tools>DNS
Right click on your server. Go to
Properties>Forwarders tab. Check enable forwarders, and add in your internet DNS
server(s). That's it. Good luck, Jim

One more thing... If the forwarder tab is
grayed out see Microsoft article 229840 for easy
solution.

You can also delete the dot ' . ' within the DNS. This means that you are a root DNS server. When it's deleted, it will automatically redirect the request to internet. It works.
