yes, i used that setup before setting up AD, and since AD requires its own
dns to work properly i installed it too. the clients are now using the local
dns in AD to resolve instead of the dns forwarding offered by monowall, i
encountered some resolving issue regarding my https based webmail client
even though i already made mx, ptr records, i have no problems with regards
to other webservers we're hosting, i can see them just fine, but just like
what andrew said in his reply, AD dns service is a little flaky, my configs
are now working even though i didn't do any more tweaking. i guess it's just
that my AD is behaving strangely.
