Internal DNS server Setup
Posted on 2002-05-23
I am running a Win2K server and would like to setup a internal DNS server. I have ten subnets. They range from
10.16.130.X to 10.16.139.X. Each department is on thier own subnet. All the departments are in the same building.
I am having a little trouble deciding on on how to set the DNS server up. Actually, I need a little example of how to set this up correctly, if possible please give a example. However, any help at all would be appreciated.
Ok, let me clarify. Yes, I do understand DNS. Yes, it is quite simple. One more comment, Just give me ideas Ok, not personal comments. Isn't that what this site is about?
See, I don't want to just add a bunch of PC and server names in a DNS server w/o grouping them logically. Just like tech.domain.local, executives.domain.local. I am mostly familiar with setting up external DNS stuff with one or two domains. NO, I'm not itegrating everything with Active directory. I just wat to setup a simple internal DNS server that will provide name resolution for all my servers Novell and NT as well as all my workstations. I know subnets have nothing to do with DNS, sorry about that one. What I meant was, how many departments I had and thier subnets. I wanted some ideas on how to logically put them into groups.
