  • To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. As a security best practice, consider using Run as to perform this procedure.

  • To open DNS, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click DNS.

  • The DNS console allows you to view unsupported resource records (RRs) in secondary zones that are obtained from other DNS server implementations, such as DNS servers running versions of BIND. These records are not used by DNS servers running Windows Server 2003 and cannot be managed through the DNS console. These types of records include legacy records, such as mail forwarder (MF) and mail domain (MD) resource records (RRs).

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.
