Configuring the DNS server role on Windows

One of the most common scenarios for running DNS in an environment with Active Directory is to add the DNS server role to a Windows domain controller or another Windows server.

If you are already using DNS in Active Directory and dynamically publishing DNS service records, no additional configuration should be necessary. If you are using DNS in Active Directory but have disabled dynamic updates, you should change the configuration for the DNS server role to allow dynamic updates. Making this change will allow Centrify agents to properly locate domain controllers in the site and select an appropriate new domain controller if a connection to its primary domain controller is lost or the managed computer is moved to a new location on the network.
