CNS Network Register and Active Directory

The CNS Documentation suggested that

" Do not create a Windows domain that equates to a DNS zone (such as example.com). Instead, create a subdomain, such as local.w2k.example.com " in the following page http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/sw/netmgtsw/ps1982/products_user_guide_chapter09186a00800a853e.html

However in http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/rtrmgmt/ciscoasu/nr/nr55/nrug/userapd.pdf

on page 2, the suggestion was "If the domain should be the same as the Zone, contact Cisco Technical Help Center for Assistance"

I have a domain freebord.org and an Active Directory on a root domain controller with domain name freebord.org. The DNS and DHCP servers run on Cisco CNS Network Register.

Is there a real technical reason why I can not use AD Domain freebord.org and domain controller rdc1.freeboard.org and zone freeboard.org?

Should I consider this an invitation to simply migrate to Microsoft DNS and DHCP infrastrcuture even though my network gears are almost all Cisco?

Re: CNS Network Register and Active Directory

To better integrate CNR with AD, do the following:

* Remove any exceptions

* reload dns

* Remove any delegations

* reload dns

* create a NEW zone called ad.tigr.com

ensure that it has SOA and NS records

* Allow dynamic dns and put in the following machines as authorized to update

- CNR server IP

- loopback (127.0.0.1)

- All AD servers

* Reload dns
