Hour 20. Understanding WINS What You’ll Learn in This Hour: Understanding WINS and NetBIOS Installing and Configuring WINS WINS Configuration Issues Adding Replication Partners Managing the WINS Database Configuring WINS Clients Avoiding WINS Problems Using NBTSTAT This hour looks at the Windows Internet Naming Service (WINS) and issues related to use of the NetBIOS interface, […]

Understanding and Configuring the DHCP Relay Agent Before we leave this discussion of routing, we should discuss issues related to running DHCP in environments where either remote clients (as discussed in the previous hour) receive their IP addresses from a DHCP server or you have a subnetted IP network that uses DCHP. Both these problem […]

Summary A routed network consists of IP subnets that are connected by routers. A server running Windows Server 2008 and configured with multiple network cards can be configured as a router through the Routing and Remote Access Service. The Routing and Remote Access Service is a service provided by the Windows Server 2008 Network Policy […]

Q&A Q. Routing and Remove Access Service, is part of what Windows Server 2008 role? A. RRAS is one set of services provided by the Network Policy and access Services role. Q. What types of routing can be configured on a Windows Server 2008 RRAS server? A. You can configure the RRAS server for static […]

Enabling and Configuring RRAS RRAS is configured in the Routing and Remote Access snap-in. This snap-in can be accessed in the Server Manager (expand the Network Policy and Access Services node), or you can run the RRAS snap-in in the MMC (Start, Administrative Tools, and then Routing and Remote Access). The first thing you must […]

Summary In this hour, you looked at the Domain Name Service. DNS provides a hierarchical name-resolution system for resolving FQDNs (friendly) to IP addresses. Each organization typically deploys its own DNS server that handles the resolution duties of that domain. The root of the DNS tree is represented by the . (dot). Top-level domains under […]

Configuring DHCP Clients A DHCP client is any computer or device that is configured to receive its IP address dynamically from the DHCP server. All Windows clients and Windows servers that do not require a static IP address can be configured as DHCP clients (actually all of them are configured as DHCP clients by default). […]

Monitoring DHCP Leases Because the whole point of DHCP is to provide IP leases to DHCP clients, you should monitor the leases that the DHCP server provides. You can view current leases in the DHCP snap-in. Follow these steps: 1. In the DHCP snap-in, click the Expand (+) button to the left of the DHCP […]

Loading the DCHP Database Backup Another aspect of managing DHCP on the network is working with the backup of the DHCP database. By default, the database is automatically backed up every 60 minutes. If you find that clients are having trouble leasing addresses, the DHCP database could be corrupt. To load the backup copy, do […]

Troubleshooting DHCP Two commands that are very useful in troubleshooting DHCP connectivity are ping and ipconfig. Both are executed at the command line. ping enables you to check the connection between a client and a DHCP server, or a DHCP server and a client. For example, to ping a DHCP server with the IP address […]

Q&A Q. How is the range of IP addresses defined for a Windows Server 2008 DHCP server? A. The IP addresses supplied by the DHCP server are held in a scope. A scope that contains more than one subnet of IP addresses is called a superscope. IP addresses in a scope that you do not […]

Installing the DHCP Role You use the Add Roles Wizard to install the DHCP server. Before you install DHCP on a server, you must configure the server with a static IP address. By the Way When you bring your first Windows Server 2008 domain controller online by installing Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), you […]
