I am trying to get w2k dns to work but have had no success. I may be entering the host and domain incorrectly. What should I be putting in this field? If anyone can write down the steps I would really appreciate it. Thank you for your time.

I apoligize for not being clear. I am trying to setup a small web hosting company. So I need to know how to setup the whole dns. I will be using a lan connection. I have a static ip and I think I am just getting confused when it asks for domain. Any help would be apprceciated. You can also contact me at 925-689-9907. I would be willing to pay someone to set this up.

Thank you.

What are you trying to setup?

Are you trying to put a record into DNS or actually set the whole thing up?

Hi there, dokz!

I think that we need more infos about what exactly you want to setup. Do you want to setup the DNS for your dial-up adapter or you are part of a LAN and need to setup DNS for it?

There are 2 things that are absolutely mandatory for W2K Server (DC) setup
1:Fixed IP address, (which you have)
2:DNS...You will need to decide if you want to register a FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) with InterNic or use a domain name strictly for internal use that is not registered.
Do NOT confuse NTdomain with DNS domain
For instance, if you have registered dns namespace called ABC.com then enter ABC.COM as the DNS root zone. following this when you enter an NT domain name, it will become NTDOMAINNAME.ABC.COM, you can use an existing NT4 domain name or select another to consolidate a previous mess W2K does not care how much of your previous environment you preserve. Be carefull because your root FQDN can NEVER be changed.(Without re installing your root dns server) If you need an internet presence cashed to the www DNS root servers you MUST start with a registered InterNic name.
Once the server is up and running, you can enter "Forward lookup zones" to resolve www and internet names like IBM.com etc. to your existing environment.
www.microsoft.com/technet has loads of articles on setting up DNS in advanced environments.
