Description

This course, Implementing Windows Server 2016 DNS, provides you with coverage from a basic level to an advanced level of Windows Server DNS, specifically the implementation available in Windows Server 2016. Some of the major topics that you will learn include: Replication, records, zones and delegation, securing and managing DNS traffic with DNS policies, and integrating cryptography into DNS with DNSSEC and DANE. In addition you'll explore applying role based access control to DNS through Just Enough Administration and Integrating Windows Server DNS with Azure DNS and BIND. By the end this course, you'll know how to get the most out of your Windows Server 2016 DNS server deployment.

Course Overview
Good day viewers. My name's Orin Thomas and welcome to my course, Implementing Windows Server 2016 DNS. I'm a decade long MVP and Microsoft regional director. I've written more than three dozen book on Microsoft Press and I have a bunch of certifications, speak all over the world at conferences and I'm completing a Doctor of Information technology degree at Charles Sturt University. This course provides you with coverage from a basic to and advanced level of Windows Server DNS, specifically the implementation available in Windows Server 2016. Some of the major topics that we'll cover include replication, records, designs and delegation, securing and managing DNS traffic with DNS policies, integrating cryptography into DNS with DNSSEC and DANE, applying role based access control to DNS through just enough administration, and integrating Windows Server DNS wirh Azure DNS and BIND. Now, by the end of this course, you'll know how to get the most out of your Windows Server 2016 DNS service deployment. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic Windows Server administration techniques, including having basic Power Shell skills. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about DNS on Windows Server with the Implementing Windows Server 2016 DNS course at Pluralsight.

Building the Lab
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module we're looking at building the lab. So in this module, I'll talk about the Pluralsight Autolab. I'll talk about what the lab actually looks like when it's built, what the requirements are for the Autolab, how to use nested virtualization with the Autolab, how you deploy the Autolab and how you use the Autolab. Let's get into it.

DNS Deployment and Administration
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module, we're looking at DNS Deployment and Administration. So, in this module, we'll talk about DNS on Server Core, DNS on Nano Server, DNS server remote management, and DNS Just Enough Administration configuration. Let's get into it.

DNS Zones and Replication
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module, we're looking at DNS zones and replication. Specifically, in this module, I'm going to talk about primary DNS zones. I'm going to talk about Active Directory integrated DNS Zones. I'll talk about secondary DNS zones. I'll talk about stub zones. I'll talk about reverse lookup zones. I'll talk about GlobalName zones. I'll talk about delegation. I'll talk about zone scavenging. And I'll talk about zone transfer policies. Let's get into it.

Forwarders and Root Hints
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas and in this module we're looking at forwarders and root hints. In this module, we're going to look at forwarders, we're going to look at conditional forwarders, we'll look at root hints, and I'll also talk about configuring your Windows DNS server to use recursion, which is the default, or turn it off, and why you'd want to do that. Let's get into it.

DNS Records and Options
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas and in this module we're looking at DNS Records and Options. In this module, we'll look at DNS record types including A records, AAAA or Four A or Quad A records, Pointer records, Start of Authority records, Name server records, Service records, Canonical name, or C Name records, Mail Exchanger records, a bunch of other types of records, Record and zone options, and special records that are used by active directory. Okay, let's get into it.

DNSSEC and DANE
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight! My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module, we're looking at DNSSEC and DANE. So, in this module, we're going to talk about DNSSEC, which is DNS Security and DANE, which is DNS-based Authentication of Named Entities, which, as you can see, much easier to say DANE. Anyway, so, in this module I'm going to be talking about the concepts behind DNSSEC, the record types that you'd use, what a Name Resolution Policy Table is, or an NRPT. We're in I2, we've got a lot of acronyms. And also what DANE is and why DANE is actually pretty cool. Also, we'll discuss why on earth you would think about implementing DNSSEC in your organization, and why you might think about implementing DANE. Anyway, let's get into it!

DNS High Availability Policies
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas and in this module we're looking at DNS High Availability Policies. So in this module I'm going to talk about DNS round robin. I'll discuss DNS policies, at least I'll start to. We're going to be talking about DNS policies over a couple of modules in this course. So I'm going to be introducing you to the basics of DNS policies in this module, and we'll do some utilization. Specifically we'll talk about application high availability and I'll explain concepts such as zone scopes in this module. In later modules we'll actually be looking at different things that you can do with DNS policies. But you will get a good idea how they start to work in this module. Anyway, let's get into it.

DNS Traffic Management Policies
Hello, and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module, we're looking at DNS traffic management policies. So, in this module, we'll look at what split brain DNS is. We'll look at geo-location based traffic management. And, we'll talk about time of day based redirection. Well, let's get into it.

DNS Server Security
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Orin Thomas and in this module we're looking at DNS server security. So in this module, we'll look at response rate limiting. We'll look at selective recursion control. We'll talk about upward referral responses. We'll talk about traffic management, DNS socket pool, and cache locking. All of these factors when properly configured, can help improve the security of your DNS server deployment, when deployed on Windows Server 2016. Anyway, let's get into it.

DNS Monitoring and Auditing
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas and in this module, we're looking at DNS Monitoring and Auditing. We'll look at zone level statistics. We'll look at DNS logging, we'll talk about DNS audit events and we'll talk about DNS performance tuning. Let's get into it.

Azure DNS and DNS on IaaS
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas and in this module we're looking at Azure DNS and DNS on IaaS, or Infrastructure as a Service. In this module, we'll be looking at Azure DNS. Specifically, we'll be looking at Azure DNS zones, delegation to Azure DNS and creating Azure DNS records. We will also discuss running Windows Server 2016 DNS Servers on Infrastructure as a Service. So let's get into it.

Integrating with BIND
Hello and welcome to Pluralsight. My name's Orin Thomas, and in this module, we're looking at integrating with BIND. So, in this module, we'll talk about how you can integrate a Windows DNS secondary zone from a BIND hosted primary zone. We'll talk how you can configure a BIND secondary zone for a Windows DNS hosted primary zone. And I'll talk briefly about integrating BIND with Active Directory. Okay, let's get into it.
