DNS Configuration on DC's
I'm kind of working through a list of things I've noticed, most of which is going on to another list such as the backups, and have now arrived to DNS.
At the moment, all clients and servers, have the 2 DC's DNS and the ISP's DNS and I have left this as it is for the time being because it's carried on working and since it did that I wasn't to worried.
Anyway, in order to correct this, I'm planning on getting rid of the ISP's DNS and hopefully the system is going to go to using the DC's DNS and the forwarders configured. Now, there's a couple of questions before I go changing things on the DC's.
1. The DC's I'm assuming shouldn't have the ISP's DNS either, right? If not, then presumably, the Main DC has it's self configured as the primary DNS and the other DC as it's Secondary DNS and then the forwarders will take care of that, is that right?
2. Should the other DC follow the same rule, so the Primary DNS is the Main DC and it's self as the Secondary DNS, or is its self which should be the Primary DNS? I've had a scout about on the net and can't really find an answer. Probably the search terms I'm using.
3. Reverse lookup zones. I currently don't have any. Searching the edugeek most people say it will work without, but it's easy enough to set up so might as well be there. So, having found a simple guide on how to do it, probably a daft question, but do I create a primary zone for each of the ranges I've got? So if I had 10.10.1.0, 10.10.2.0 and 10.10.3.0, I'd create a primary zone for each one?
