Microsoft Server: Installing DNS

I am a network guy, I was not fond of doing system as my interest lies with routing and switching however after several projects I have come to realize doing some system hands-on would be beneficial for my career advancement.

I would like to do some McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator lab, I installed this in one of projects and would like to do some personal lab with McAfee solution, I am beginning to like McAfee 🙂 Before installing epo server I would like to setup active directory and DNS is essential for AD.

Configure your server Wizard

This Wizard can be found in the administrative tools, I chose customize instead of using the wizard to guide me through.

DNS is a permanent service it is good to use static IP address so that AD can work properly.
