Chapter 2. Manage DNS and DHCP

It’s impossible to deploy and manage Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) without also managing at least the Domain Name System (DNS), which is an integral part of Active Directory. And, if I’m going to cover DNS, I think it also makes sense to cover at least the basics of Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).

In this chapter, you’ll learn how to create and manage DNS zones, including primary, secondary, and stub zones, and how to create and manage DNS records. You’ll also learn basic DHCP setup and configuration.
