Description

What is this course about?

DNS or Domain Naming System is a mechanism for name resolution which is used worldwide in almost every type of networking environment. In this course I’ll be covering basic fundamentals of DNS and Name resolution. Gradually we’ll progress through advanced configuration of DNS and we’ll see how DNS can be integrated with Active Directory Directory Service or AD DS. Proper designing the DNS infrastructure can solve most of the name resolution and security issue. You’ll learn how to secure the DNS and implement it for internal and external namespace. At last we’ll walk-through some troubleshooting tools to identify and troubleshoot name resolution issues.

What kind of materials are used?

I’ve designed this course using Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC), so this course will also prepare you for MS exam 70-411 as DNS is one of the topic covered in the exam.
