I recently added another DC and added the DNS role and configured it as a primary AD integrated server. the “backup” DC (BDC) has itself set as its preferred DNS server and the PDC as its secondary. However, if i shut down the PDC – i lose all DNS on the network. I’m havent checked if i lose ability for users to authenticate, but I know that DNS doesnt “Fail over” to the BDC. Which kinda defeats the purpose of having added the BDC (lol hooray for virtualisation) p.s – i dont even know what fsmo roles are…….. or why i would transfer them?
