Install a Windows 2003 DNS Server

Every network needs a DNS (domain name service) server, right? Windows comes with a DNS server, but it isn’t installed by default. This will tell you how to install a DNS server on a Windows 2003 server.


As an administrator on the system, click Start -> Control Panel -> Add or Remove Programs -> Add/Remove Windows Components.

In the window that opens, click on the Networking Services line (careful not to uncheck the box to the left) and click Details.

Find the line for Domain Name System (DNS), click the checkbox on its left, and click OK. Click Next.

If Windows asks for a CD-ROM, do as it requests. When it is done, click Finish and you’ll have your very own DNS server.
