This has been bugging me for a while.
We all know Active Directory is a LDAP database.
We also know that the Windows DNS service, when running on a domain controller, can store its data in AD instead of plain text zone files, thus taking advantage of AD automatic replication and removing the need for primary/secondary DNS servers.
The question: where and how are DNS data actually stored in Active Directory?
Can they be accessed using LDAP tools such as ADSIEdit?
Is any DNS entry an actual LDAP object?
An attribute in an object?
Something entirely different?
