DNS Server

Updated: October 15, 2008

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

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.

  • 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.
