Applies To: Windows Server 2008

The following table lists and describes the WMI classes that are associated with the DNS Server service.

 

Microsoft DNS WMI Class Description

MicrosoftDNS_Domain

Represents a domain in a DNS hierarchy tree.

MicrosoftDNS_Zone

Describes a DNS zone. Every instance of the class MicrosoftDNS_Zone must be assigned to exactly one DNS server. Zones might be associated with multiple instances of the classes MicrosoftDNS_Domain and MicrosoftDNS_ResourceRecord.

MicrosoftDNS_Cache

Describes a cache existing on a DNS server. (Do not confuse this with a cache file that contains root hints.) This class simplifies visualizing the containment of DNS objects, rather than representing a real object. The class is a container for the resource records cached by the DNS server.

Every instance of the class MicrosoftDNS_Cache must be assigned to exactly one DNS server. It might be associated with multiple instances of MicrosoftDNS_Domain and MicrosoftDNS_ResourceRecord.

MicrosoftDNS_RootHints

Describes the RootHints stored in a cache file on a DNS server. This class simplifies visualizing the containment of DNS objects, rather than representing a real object. The class is a container for the resource records stored by the DNS server in a cache file.
