This also allows manual DNS host records to be easily monitored and maintained.Each new DNS server will have some new zones that can be searched. This is actually the default configuration for Windows 2003 DNS servers.Leaving this enabled simplifies DNS administration and speeds DNS queries to the internet.DNS is an important prerequisite of Active Directory.Without it, Active Directory will not function, or should we say, you can’t install or promote a server to a domain controller without having a DNS server either locally on that server or somewhere else on your network.
