DNS setup on mixed mode domainLocked
We currently have NT domain with W2K workstations. We have 1 NT PDC with 8 NT BDCs 4 of which are located in detached offices connected with fractional T1 lines. We are using WINS and each BDC is a secondary WINS server with their own synchronized copies of the WINS database. All NT servers and all 2000 clients point to a DNS server which is controlled by the state, it is not in our office or under our control. We plan on upgrading our PDC to Win 2000 server. I understand that AD uses DNS rather than WINS. Does this mean I need to setup each BDC as a backup DNS server? I’m unclear on this, thus this post. If someone needs more information please ask.
