Hello Experts,
I am in the process of creating a DNS Core Server. From the Core Server i can use dnscmd to configure the server. However, I would like to do this from a Windows 2008 R2 or windows 2012 server that doesnt have the DNS role on it. I can' seem to find the right command or package to install the dnsmgmt.msc on the server i want to administer from.

You would go into server Manager, then add the DNS role to the server:

2008: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc725925.aspx

2012: http://blog.hyperexpert.com/how-to-install-dns-role-in-windows-server-2012/


From a command prompt:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee441260(v=ws.10).aspx

Let us know if you need further assistance.

So I will need to install the DNS role on the server that I want to administer from, it's just that i dont actually configure it. Is that right?

I am sorry, I misunderstood what you were asking.

From another server, you would open mmc and add the dns management and connect to the remote core server.

Here is a link:  http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd163507.aspx

Look under the section labeled:  Using MMC Snap-ins to Administer Server Core

Ok, in Server Manager, it's considered a feature not a role.

Click Features on the left side

Click Add Features > Browse to and expand the Remote Server Administration Tools > Expand Role Administration Tools > Select DNS Server Tools > Continue through the prompts to install

I have attached a Word document with a couple screen shots.
