Storing DNS Information in the Active Directory

One of the most powerful features of Windows 2000 DNS is the capability to store DNS information in the Active Directory. If a zone is stored in the Active Directory, it is said to be "Active Directory-integrated."

In order for a zone to be Active Directory-integrated, the DNS service must be installed on a Windows 2000 Domain Controller. You can set the zone type to be an Active Directory-integrated primary zone by right-clicking on the zone, selecting properties, and setting the appropriate value in the DNS MMC snap-in. Once done, this zone will be created as a container in the Active Directory. For example, location in the Active directory of the zone mycompany.com (to support the Domain mycompany.com) would be mycompany.com\system\MicrosoftDNS\mycompany.com.
