Objective 1.1 Install, configure, and troubleshoot DNS

This objective covers deploying Domain Name System (DNS) on a machine running Windows 2000 Server. If you are installing DNS after you’ve installed and configured the operating system, it is important to verify you have implemented the TCP/IP protocol and that your server has a static IP (Internet Protocol) address assigned. In many organizations, existing workstations and servers may have a dynamic IP address assigned via a Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server. In this case, you cannot install the DNS Server. Once your server has been assigned a static IP address, you can install DNS through the Control Panel’s Add/Remove Programs icon. DNS is a Windows component, so you need to click the appropriate tab. DNS doesn’t require a reinstallation of the operating system, so it can be added to your server at any time.

Once you install DNS, you can test your configuration using the DNS Console Manager. The console manager includes a simple query test feature to provide you a quick way to evaluate whether the service has been installed and is working correctly. In addition to the console manager’s test capability, you can also use the command-line utility NSLOOKUP.EXE.
