I set out on a mission a couple of months ago to post  more about under-the-radar features in Windows Server "Longhorn"......there are a lot. 

So I was messing around with some DNS settings earlier today.....as I needed to setup some conditional forwarders.  To my pleasant surprise, I didnt need to drill into the properties of the DNS server to configure forwarder.....but rather the new interface has a node just for setting up conditional forwarders.  See?

COnditional Forwarders in DNS

 

Pretty neat? One part that I particuarly enjoyed was that it validated that the forwarder I typed in......what's more - I can choose to replicate this conditional forwarder to all my other servers that support AD-Integrated zones.

Cheers,
