hi,

i do not see why not.

there is no specified informaton from microsoft which says that the Active Directory must co-exist with a DNS on the same box (if that is what u r asking?).

regards.
what you do not see does not mean you should not believe

I've read an article describing it.
Problem is you may have to convince the MS admins. They are taught during Windows courses that you must use Windows DNS and may believe MS won't support such a configuration.

Actually -those who take Windows courses-do learn about Active directory/Bind implementation.
Take a look at this link:

Yes, but you must be sure to get a version of bind (or configure a stock version of bind) to support underscore ( _ ), which is not a valid DNS entry in the IETF doco.

I have a college who claims his active directory runs better from bind9 then it did from MS-DNS
There have been Innumerable people who have helped me. Of course, I've managed to piss most of them off.
