Currently, I have 2 Windows 2003 Active Directory DNS Servers. These both serve as public and private DNS for our IT infrastructure, as well as being our domain controllers.

I need to make one of the servers just serve public requests to our websites and not be recursive and the other private to our domain and not to response to internet based requests.

Any help would be appreciated

I would suggest not to use the server that are hosting your Active Directory as your public DNS server. A separate server would probably be better.

What you are asking for will create 2 single points of failure and will require you to change DHCP and will probably give you problems with your AD.

What you want to do is a split DNS configuration, in which the external users see one thing and the internals see another.


Having a single public DNS server also violates a RFC.
