|Ok a bit vague so some further details, I am running 2008 R2 Server as the host partition ('VMHost') for some virtual machines, with a couple of other workstations attached on the network. At the moment it is all working fine as a Workgroup but I am finding that I need to switch this over to a Domain environment.|
My intention is to install Active Directory on the virtual machine host. Question is do I also need to install DNS for ADS to work correctly. Also do I need to install DHCP for DNS to work properly. At the moment DHCP server service is provided by a hardware router, can I leave it this way or does DNS require DHCP service to be installed on the same machine?
