English [Auto] And this lesson we're going to look at installing the DNS roll on my Windows 20:16 server I'm going to go to server manager and server manager. I'm just going to click add roles and features in the Before you begin. I'll click next. We are all on a roll so we will leave this radio button on road based or feature based installation RTX that SVR one is the machine I want to install DNS on. So I will leave that selected in the list. You'll see under my list are roles. DNS is in the list. When I click DNS it does tell me that I have to install the remote server administration tools which are just the graphical tools for DNS. I will look add features for that. We will accept the defaults for everything else. So on the feature screen we are making no changes on the DNS service screen. This just gives us an overview of the purpose of DNS itself. I'll click next for that DNS does not require my server to reboot. So I do not have a need to click the restart the destination server automatically. I would just click install and that'll take just a moment and it will install the DNS server will the DNS installation has successfully completed. Now we will take a look at some of the configuration settings in the DNS server itself.
