DNS Servers with 3 DC's

DNS Servers with 3 DC's


If I have 2 virtual domain controllers/DNS and I'm going to keep the third 10 year old physical one also. My question is about setting up the DNS servers when configuring the Static IP's. Should I mix match them?

For instance:

Server1 = Primary DNS Secondary DNS
Server2 = Primary DNS Secondary DNS
Server3 = Primary DNS Secondary DNS

In case of a disaster one would cover the other one, etc.


RE: DNS Servers with 3 DC's

As long as your zone synchronization between DNS hosts is solid, there should be no problem. If my customer can't show me confidence in such a thing, then I tell them to just make sure all servers have the same DNS servers in the same order.
