DNS on Windows 2000

DNS on Windows 2000

by Cricket Liu (Author), Matt Larson (Author)


This text is a special Windows-oriented edition of DNS and BIND . The Domain Name System (DNS) is one of the Internet's fundamental building blocks: the distributed host information database that's responsible for translating names into addresses, routing mail to its proper destination, and many other services. As the preface says, if you're using the Internet, you're already using DNS - even if you don't know it. Besides covering general issues like installing, setting up, and maintaining the server, DNS on Windows 2000 tackles those specific to the Windows environment: integration between DNS and Active Directory, conversion from BIND to the Microsoft DNS server, and registry settings. The book aims to provide the reader with a grounding in: security issues; system tuning; caching; zone change notification; troubleshooting; and planning for growth.
