Summary

In this chapter, I covered some of the new features found in the Windows 2000 DNS Server. Some of these features are designed to replace the functionality found in the previous method of name resolution, WINS.

The new Dynamic Update feature is the most important of these. Dynamic Update provides a way to update the DNS database automatically when a client obtains an IP address via DHCP. Previously these updates had to be manually entered by an administrator.
