Lesson 2: Deploying a DNS Server

Active Directory domains require DNS servers to enable domain members to resolve the names of computers and services. In most Windows networks, in fact, DNS servers are hosted on the Active Directory domain controllers themselves. Deploying a new DNS server on a domain controller requires very little administrative expertise, but you still need to know how to customize a DNS deployment to meet the particular needs of your organization.

This lesson introduces you to DNS server deployment and configuration. Whereas the topic of creating and configuring zones is covered in Chapter 3, this lesson focuses on configuring server-wide properties and features.
