6. Network Administration

Chapter 6. Network Administration

The network is the foundation of an organization’s information system and allows computers and other devices to communicate with each other and with the Internet. Network services such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) servers and Domain Name System (DNS) servers simplify the configuration and management of IP address information and network names. To adequately fulfill these roles, such services must be available for clients that need them and secure from attack.

Microsoft Windows Server 2012 includes enhancements to the DHCP Server and DNS Server roles that can help increase DHCP availability and safeguard DNS name resolution from being compromised or misused. Windows Server 2012 also includes added support for managing different aspects of Windows Server–based networks using Windows PowerShell. This chapter demonstrates how to implement these new capabilities to ensure the availability and security of these critical network services and to manage Windows Server–based networks more efficiently. In addition, this lesson also describes how to configure Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) networking and interoperability between IPv6 and IPv4.
