Hey all,

I'm inexperienced with Windows Server 2008 and am setting up a "lab" or test server here at the company I work for's network.

In the intial configuration process, when setting up the Active Direct Domain Services, I'm stuck at the DNS server

Questions are...

-Do I install it?
-Will this interfer/mess up things with our main file server?

Sorry, a bit amateur with this stuff

Any help is appreciated

Sorry about the link above but this is a simple guide to setting up DNS for Small Business and it should explain the basics of installation for Windows 2008.

Once loaded please load additional Link for Doc View.

Good Luck.

P.s. To keep your existing network away from your test environment do 1 of two things...

1. Isolate the workstation test environ ment by using a different Sub-Net Mask.

2. Or simply run test setups on an Isolated workstation (Disconnected from Main Network).

Install DNS through dcpromo. That makes sure that the DNS is integrated with Active Directory. The server should be configured with it's DNS servers as 127.0.0.1 and your ISP's DNS servers should be set as forwarders.
