Some background info in case it’s needed.
[li]I have a DNS Internet connection.[/li][li]I have four computers hooked up to my modem/router combo.[/li][li]One computer is running Windows Server 2003.[/li][/ul]
I plan on making the 2003 computer a domain controller and adding a client. Of course to do that, I’ll have to add a DNS server role.
During one of my final college classes I was part of group which had to set up a domain controller and some clients. We needed to stay off of the college’s Internet connection and just connect the computers locally, but we somehow accidentally connected to the college’s connection and it screwed up the 2003 DNS server. The server pulled some information from the Internet connection and added it to its own. This screwed up the information we added manually.
My question is, what can I do to make sure that once I add the DNS server role that it won’t be affected by the LAN it’s on? I’m not too worried about it effecting the router or any computers on the LAN (except the client which I’ll add later). I want to make sure that only the client that I’ll be adding has anything to do with the DNS server on the domain controller.
I hope I didn’t poorly word any of that and confuse anyone :o.
