As computer names are easier to remember than IP addresses, we look at installing the DNS server role in Windows 2012. The DNS server allows computer name to IP address resolution and allows Active Directory to list services that are made available to end users.
One of the courses I teach is the
Microsoft Windows 2012 Installing and Configuring course, the
Microsoft designation is the 20410B
In the presentation, we look at installing the DNS server Role in Microsoft Windows Server 2012.
DNSis a service that resolves FQDNs and other host names to IP addresses. All Windows Server operating systems include a DNS Server service. When you use DNS, users on your network can locate network resources by typing in user friendly names (for example, vbry21.wordpress.com), which the computer then resolves to an IP address. The benefit is that IPv4 addresses may be difficult to remember (for example, 172.16.1.1), while a domain name typically is easier to remember. In addition, you can use host names that do not change while the underlying IP addresses can be changed to suit your organizational needs.
