DNS Root Hints/Forwarders - Both or one or the other
On a small 2008R2 network (single DNS server on the DC) it has Root hints enabled but it is also set to forward to the council's DNS.
in the "best practice diag" it grumbles that the root hints cannot be resolved and ideally it should be able to do this.
the installation is pretty much left as default out of the box so if im forwarding DNS requests should this be disabled? is there a performance gain or is it the best practice menu being overly sensitive?.
