Lab Duration

It will take approximately 1 hour to complete this lab.

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.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

  • Prepare, Install and Configure DHCP
  • Configure Reservations on DHCP 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 DNS using the Windows PowerShell tool and to configure additional DNS parameters.

Learning Outcomes

After completing this exercise, you will be able to:

  • Install and Configure DNS
  • Configure Forward lookup Zones on DNS
  • Change Dynamic IP Address to Static and Test Dynamic DNS Registration
