Server 2016 And 2012 R2 - Reverse DNS Zone Creation VIDEO TUTORIAL

  We use our DNS servers for changing domain names into IP addresses. Sometimes we might want to go from IP addresses to domain names. This video shows how to create a reverse DNS zone so that we are able to change IP addresses to domain names.

1. 00:00:00:14 / 00:00:06:08 - hello I could day to you in today's
2. 00:00:03:54 / 00:00:10:50 - video we'll have a look at how to set up
3. 00:00:06:08 / 00:00:14:00 - a reverse lookup zone in DNS okay
4. 00:00:10:50 / 00:00:18:00 - basically what this is is when we type
5. 00:00:14:00 / 00:00:21:57 - in in PowerShell okay let's just exit
6. 00:00:18:00 / 00:00:26:82 - out of that shall we say we want to find
7. 00:00:21:57 / 00:00:30:06 - the IP address of a company DNS helps us
8. 00:00:26:82 / 00:00:33:17 - by us giving google.com and it turns it
9. 00:00:30:05 / 00:00:35:82 - into an IP address okay reverse lookup
10. 00:00:33:17 / 00:00:39:98 - is the exact opposite we type in an IP
11. 00:00:35:82 / 00:00:44:32 - address and we warn the DNS server to
12. 00:00:39:98 / 00:00:46:28 - basically give us back the name of that
13. 00:00:44:32 / 00:00:48:14 - domain okay
14. 00:00:46:28 / 00:00:53:51 - as an example let's have a quick look
15. 00:00:48:14 / 00:01:00:51 - over here okay NS lookup okay and then
16. 00:00:53:50 / 00:01:03:44 - set type equals pointer okay and now we
17. 00:01:00:50 / 00:01:06:84 - have a server server zero zero five or
18. 00:01:03:44 / 00:01:09:32 - even this case server zero zero six has
19. 00:01:06:84 / 00:01:17:57 - that IP address okay so let's just type
20. 00:01:09:32 / 00:01:20:00 - in 192.168.0.0 okay now if we had a
21. 00:01:17:57 / 00:01:22:31 - reverse lookup setup it would come back
22. 00:01:20:00 / 00:01:26:15 - and say it's called server zero zero six
23. 00:01:22:31 / 00:01:27:83 - now that's not there so we need to go
24. 00:01:26:15 / 00:01:31:20 - into DNS manager how do we do that
25. 00:01:27:84 / 00:01:34:79 - we open up server manager in server 2016
26. 00:01:31:20 / 00:01:39:45 - it's click over there click over there
27. 00:01:34:79 / 00:01:42:68 - and then click on that ok in Server 2012
28. 00:01:39:45 / 00:01:46:46 - it was by a Start screen or it was
29. 00:01:42:68 / 00:01:49:16 - pimping taskbar okay so we now have this
30. 00:01:46:46 / 00:01:53:21 - and then this opens up like that click
31. 00:01:49:17 / 00:01:56:93 - on DNS right click over there DNS
32. 00:01:53:21 / 00:01:58:50 - manager then basically select the server
33. 00:01:56:93 / 00:02:01:78 - that you have yours will be different
34. 00:01:58:50 / 00:02:05:00 - over here ours is what is setup for our
35. 00:02:01:79 / 00:02:08:67 - demo environment ok so basically now
36. 00:02:05:00 / 00:02:10:53 - reverse look up zones new zone very
37. 00:02:08:66 / 00:02:14:06 - simple next
38. 00:02:10:53 / 00:02:17:18 - make us a primary zone perfect okay
39. 00:02:14:06 / 00:02:20:76 - secondary zone is like a copy zone a
40. 00:02:17:18 / 00:02:25:62 - backup zone stub zone kinda like a
41. 00:02:20:76 / 00:02:27:93 - cheaper version of a copy okay next okay
42. 00:02:25:62 / 00:02:30:15 - see how you want the zone date I
43. 00:02:27:93 / 00:02:32:50 - replicated basically this is a nice idea
44. 00:02:30:15 / 00:02:36:06 - the doc the default over here is quite
45. 00:02:32:50 / 00:02:38:65 - good okay next okay you choose an IP
46. 00:02:36:06 / 00:02:42:15 - version 4 or 6 in this case we're doing
47. 00:02:38:65 / 00:02:48:26 - four now what we do is we type in the
48. 00:02:42:15 / 00:02:48:26 - first three okay for us three bytes
49. 00:02:49:68 / 00:02:57:38 - 192.168.0 okay and then it'll be able to
50. 00:02:52:84 / 00:03:01:65 - resolve all the others okay click Next
51. 00:02:57:38 / 00:03:04:78 - okay only secure updates that is ideal
52. 00:03:01:65 / 00:03:08:31 - as this active directory and we're going
53. 00:03:04:78 / 00:03:13:95 - to be secure now that's happily setup
54. 00:03:08:31 / 00:03:19:43 - okay okay now we can type in the address
55. 00:03:13:95 / 00:03:22:59 - that we had before and it finds it okay
56. 00:03:19:43 / 00:03:24:48 - sometimes it may not be instantaneous
57. 00:03:22:59 / 00:03:29:50 - because this needs to start slowly
58. 00:03:24:48 / 00:03:34:94 - building up all its pointers okay so
59. 00:03:29:50 / 00:03:37:26 - basically it might require restart a
60. 00:03:34:94 / 00:03:40:26 - refresh or a reload
61. 00:03:37:26 / 00:03:44:70 - you know refresh is over there reloads
62. 00:03:40:26 / 00:03:49:15 - over there okay and basically other
63. 00:03:44:70 / 00:03:51:45 - servers when they join up to the domain
64. 00:03:49:15 / 00:03:53:88 - when they log in it starts building it
65. 00:03:51:45 / 00:03:57:12 - up so over time it starts to get
66. 00:03:53:88 / 00:03:59:26 - populated alternatively if you want you
67. 00:03:57:12 / 00:04:03:60 - can create pointers
68. 00:03:59:25 / 00:04:06:63 - okay so that'll be three one okay and
69. 00:04:03:60 / 00:04:13:81 - then the host name is server zero zero
70. 00:04:06:63 / 00:04:15:69 - five okay do not take that one okay it's
71. 00:04:13:81 / 00:04:21:45 - not necessarily you don't take it it's
72. 00:04:15:69 / 00:04:23:09 - just okay and there you go it's server
73. 00:04:21:45 / 00:04:26:72 - zero zero five you could have given
74. 00:04:23:08 / 00:04:31:23 - the full name like that but services are
75. 00:04:26:72 / 00:04:33:29 - fine is good enough for now okay um
76. 00:04:31:24 / 00:04:35:62 - hopefully this is help thanks for
77. 00:04:33:29 / 00:04:35:62 - watching
