Using this option, configure and deploy the DNS server role to a new computer or a DNS server operating on an existing computer. By assigning the DNS server role, you can configure standard DNS primary, secondary, and stub zones as well as AD DS-integrated primary and stub zones. There is also an option to manage aging, updates, types, and multiple zones—all in an automated process. This is not a migration process from an existing DNS server; rather, it is a new installation of DNS zones of all types.
Note For ZTI task sequences using Configuration Manager 2012 and Configuration Manager 2007 R3 that are not created using the MDT task sequence templates, ensure that you run the Use Toolkit Package and Gather task sequence steps prior to running any of the server role task sequence steps. The server role task sequence steps are dependent on the Use Toolkit Package and Gather task sequence steps.
To configure and deploy the DNS server role
1. Edit task_sequence_name (where task_sequence_name is the name of the task sequence to which you want to add the task sequence step) for:
· LTI as described in Configure the Task Sequence Properties Task Sequence Tab
· ZTI using Configuration Manager 2012 as described in Configuring ZTI Task Sequence Steps in Configuration Manager 2012
· ZTI using Configuration Manager 2007 R3 as described in Configuring ZTI Task Sequence Steps in Configuration Manager 2007 R3
2. For Windows Server 2003 target operating systems, add a new task sequence step based on the Run Command Line task sequence type to install the Windows Support Tools for Windows Server 2003. Run the following command (where unc_path is the fully qualified UNC path to the folder in which the suptools.msi file resides):
msiexec /i unc_path\suptools.msi /q addlocal=all
Alternatively, install the Windows Support Tools for Windows Server 2003 as an application. If you choose this option, restart the target computer after installing the Windows Support Tools for Windows Server 2003. For more information about deploying an application in:
· LTI deployments, see Create a New Application in the Deployment Workbench
· ZTI deployments using Configuration Manager 2012, see the section, “Configuring Content Management in Configuration Manager,” in the Configuration Manager 2012 Documentation Library, included with Configuration Manager 2012
· ZTI deployments using Configuration Manager 2007 R3, see the section, “Configuring Software Distribution,” in the Configuration Manager 2007 Documentation Library, included with Configuration Manager 2007 R3.
Note The Windows Support Tools for Windows Server 2003 must be installed prior to running the Configure DNS task sequence type that you create later in this process.
3. Add a new task sequence step based on the Configure DNS task sequence type for:
· LTI on the Task Sequence tab (In the task sequence hierarchy, click Add, click Roles, and then click Configure DNS.)
· ZTI in the task sequence hierarchy (Click Add, click MDT, and then click Configure DNS.)
4. On the Properties tab, in Name, type name (where name is the name by which the task is identified in the task sequence).
5. In Description, type description (where description is the description of the task and its role in the task sequence).
6. In the Zones section, click the yellow Add button.
7. In the DNS Zone Properties dialog box, in DNS zone name, type a name for the zone (for example, woodgrove.com).
8. In Type, click Change.
9. In the Change Zone Type dialog box, select one of the following zone types:
· Primary zone
· Secondary zone
· Stub zone
10. In the Change Zone Type dialog box, select the Store the zone in Active Directory check box if DNS will be installed on a domain controller, and then click OK.
11. In the DNS Zone Properties dialog box, in Dynamic updates, select one of the following:
· Nonsecure and Secure
12. Select the Scavenge stale resource records check box to enable this feature, and then click OK.
13. On the Properties tab of the Configure DNS step, click Server Properties.
14. In the Server Properties dialog box, in Server Options, select the appropriate server options to enable.
15. In the Server Properties dialog box, in Name checking, select the appropriate name-checking options to enforce, and then click OK.
16. In the task_sequence Properties dialog box (where task_sequence is the name of the task sequence being edited), click OK.
17. Close the Deployment Workbench.
