        This document can help you implement Domain Name System (DNS) on Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2003 on a small network. DNS is the main way that Windows Server 2003 translates computer names to network addresses. An Active Directory®-based domain controller also can act as a DNS server that registers the names and addresses of computers in the domain and then provides the network address of a member computer when queried with the computer's name.
        This guide explains how to set up DNS on a simple network consisting of a single domain.
