Hi Community, before we start with DHCP let us complette the DNS config by creating a Reverse Lookup Zone on our current DNS server. The first thing we have to do is to open the “Server Manager” and than click “DNS” under “Tools”. In the DNS MMC we click right on “Revers Loopup Zone” and select “New Zone…”.
To learn more about DNS, feel free to visite Wiki page 5. To prevent us from to much network traffic because of DNS replication, we do not replicate the zone over the complette forest, we replicate only in this domain. After this you have to select the IP Version that will be handled by this zone. “Allow both nonsecure and secure dynamic updates” could be a entrace for Haks (DNS spoofing). Now you get a short summary and you can create the zone by clicking “Finish”. If all works fine you should see the new zone in you DNS MMC.
Even though the internal DNS and the BIND DLZ modules are new, they both support all basic requirements for Active Directory and more.
A working Active Directory is heavily based on a working DNS.
So, we already enabled Scavenging and Aging on our server, and now we want to setup a Reverse Lookup Zone.
Before proceeding, make sure your DNS settings are poitning the right way and you have set IPv6 to DHCP instead of loopback (::1) unless you actually have configured IPv6.
By default, Samba creates the following two forward zones during provisioning/upgrading (of course with your own domain name): The Samba internal DNS is a new implementation.
