As i am somehow aware that AD itself needs to be DNS server to work. The real concern is that my company has a live DNS server working effectively. But now my management decided to control all the branches with proper AD.
Now i must migrate all the DNS entries to the AD configured server so that all the branches get access for all application as it was from previous DNS servers. I had configured the DNS server in linux and everything is still there we have not migrated yet.
Is it possible if i use DNS server from existing server and configure only AD in new server so that client PC uses 2 different IP in their host one for DNS server and other one for AD access.
I did this but everytime if i need to be in AD i must assign IP address of AD in primary DNS server and if i need to access all the domains and subdomains of application and resources i must switch it's IP address again back to the primary DNS server. Assigning in Alternative DNS Server do not works for both.
So, is it possible to do so with different DNS server and AD so that client PC can get access for both AD and DNS server configured in two different physical machines???????
