Checklist: Store Data in an AD DS Application Partition

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

You can store Domain Name System (DNS) zones in the domain or application directory partitions of Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS). An application directory partition is a data structure in AD DS that distinguishes data for different replication purposes. When you store a DNS zone in an application directory partition, you can control the zone replication scope by controlling the replication scope of the application directory partition. For a zone to be stored in the specified application directory partition, the DNS server hosting the zone must be enlisted in the specified application directory partition. By default, each AD DS-integrated DNS server maintains enlistments for itself in the appropriate DomainDnsZones and ForestDnsZones application directory partitions.
