Event ID 4510 — DNS Server Active Directory Integration

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

You can configure the DNS Server service to use Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) to store zone data. This makes it possible for the DNS server to rely on directory replication, which enhances security, reliability, and ease of administration.
