Integrating BIND DNS with AD

By Rabbit_Runner ·
Greetings,
We need to integrate to an Active Directory environment using BIND DNS. Is there anyone using a BIND DNS server that is seperate, with a Microsoft Active Directory, Domain Controller.
What we are doing...
We plan to create a new NT4 BDC, promote to PDC, then upgrade Win2k with AD.

Problem. Our main DNS servers are UNIX. How can we implement AD with secondary DNS zones? The BIND is 8.2.?. We (domain admins) will not have any direct access to the UNIX servers.

Any pros and con experience input highly welcomed.

thanks...

Michael R

Integrating BIND DNS with AD

Please read Technet article 255913:
Integrating Windows 2000 DNS into an Existing BIND or Windows NT 4.0-Based DNS Namespace

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q255913
(please remove any spaces)

There is Microsoft-specific stuff that BIND does not support. You will need to have DNS running on the Win2K domain controllers, but you can utilize your existing DNS namespace. You just need to delegate some DNS zones to run on the Win2k DNS servers, and the rest of the namespace will be on the BIND servers.

hope this helps

Thanks for the info. What you provided was only part of the solution, but it did point us in the correct direction.
