The Install and Configure DHCP and DNS Servers module provides you with the instruction and computer hardware to develop your hands on skills in the defined topics. This module includes the following exercises:

  • Installing and Configuring DHCP
  • Installing and Configuring DNS

Exam Objectives

The following exam objectives are covered in this lab:

  • 1.3 Install and configure the following networking services/applications (DNS and DHCP)
  • 5.10 Given a scenario, configure and apply the appropriate ports and protocols (DNS and DHCP)

Exercise 1 - Installing and Configuring DHCP

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network service that leases IP addresses to computers on a network. DHCP streamlines the allocation of IP addresses to computers as it prevents duplicate IP addresses and ensures correct configuration of network settings like subnet mask, default gateway and DNS, because the IP address pool is configured typically on just one server.

Exercise 2 - Installing and Configuring DNS

Doman Name System (DNS) is a network service that translates computer names or hostnames to numeric IP addresses or vice-versa. Although largely associated with the Internet, DNS can be used in a private network for the following benefits: Simplicity - computer names are easier to find than numeric IP addresses. Convenience- IP addresses can change but computer names can remain constant.

In this exercise, you will learn to install and configure DNS.
