Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To enable DNS name resolution

  1. Create a console containing IP Security Monitor. Or, open a saved console file containing IP Security Monitor.

  2. Right-click a server name.


    • IP Security Monitor/ServerName

  3. Click Properties.

  4. Select the Enable DNS name resolution check box.


  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local or remote computer. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure.

  • For information about adding the IP Security Monitor snap-in, see Related Topics.

  • The Enable DNS name resolution check box specifies whether you want to use Domain Name System (DNS) reverse queries and NetBIOS Adapter Status messages to resolve the DNS or NetBIOS computer name that is associated with an IP address when displaying sources or destinations. To resolve the DNS computer name from its IP address, your DNS infrastructure must have the appropriate reverse domains and pointer records configured, either manually or with DNS dynamic update. To resolve the NetBIOS computer name from its IP address, NetBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled on the computer.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
