Domain Name System (DNS) is the name resolution protocol for TCP/IP networks, such as the Internet. Client computers query a DNS server to resolve memorable, alphanumeric DNS names to the IP addresses that computers use to communicate with each other.
The DNS management pack for Windows 2000 Server, Windows Server 2003, and Windows Server 2008 is available from the System Center Operations Manager 2007 Catalog.
- Prescriptive troubleshooting steps for DNS server and client events is available from DNS Infrastructure.
Help installed with Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 is also available in the Windows Server 2008 Technical Library.
