Netlogon _tcp sub domain and _msdcs._tcp

Discussion in 'Active Directory' started by Ondrej Sevecek, Nov 11, 2004.

  1. Hi,

    I thought, Windows clients use only _msdcs subdomain (and its respective
    _tcp and so subdomains, certainly) for DC locator searches. Why then
    Netlogon registers also the SRV records diretly to _tcp subdomain, when no
    lookups are targeted there? For compatibility with others? Or are there
    cases when DClocator searches also these records.

    Both.

    The IP/DNS locator will use the records without _siteName in them when
    ascertaining its site.

    The others are there, I assume, for non-Windows compatibility, as the _mscds
    is an MS zone.
