    Our company is upgrading all of the servers to Windows 2003 technology. At
    the present time there is a single ADC, which is also the DNS server for our
    LAN, and I would like to add a new ADC as a backup.

    The new ADC should have its own DNS server to backup both, the ADC and DNS
    in case the first ADC goes down. How do I do this?

    Please provide any information to resolve this issue.

    Thank you in advance for your help!

  2. are any of those old servers SBS?

    We don't mind answering your questions but from the sound of it you may be
    better asking somewhere else.

    I do have the standard edition of Windows 2003 server. I am not able to
    connect to the Windows 2003 active directory news group. Could you please
    provide the html for this group?
    Thank you!

  4. Just install DNS on the backup domain controller and set the zone to be
    Active-Directory Integrated.

    If the zone is AD-Integrated, the zone data is stored in the AD. Changes
    made to one will get replicated to the other when the AD is replicated.

    Then configure all clients to use one server as the primary DNS and the
    other server as the secondary DNS.

    Chris - Thank you. One more question.

    What happen to the news groups? Could you please tell me where is the news
    group for Windwos 2003 server? It seems the support page has chaged a lot
    and now I am not able to find anything.

    Please help me with this.

    Thank you!

    get anything.

    If you can, please provide the Windows 2003 ADC newgroup address.

    THank you!

    I can understand the frustration and confusion. If you access the group (as
    I did) via http://support.microsoft.com/newsgroups/default.aspx then the
    windows.public.server.active_directory group doesn't appear, but several 2000
    groups do.

    It's a bit confusing to navigate the web interface, especially when used to
    the ng access.
