Exercise 2.3 | Creating Domains | Overview | A single zone on a DNS server can encompass multiple domains as long as the domains are contiguous. In this exercise, you create the departmental domains you specified in your namespace design. | Completion time | 10 minutes | 1. In the DNS Manager console, right-click the zone you created using the internal domain name from your namespace in Exercise 2.3. From the context menu, select New Domain. The New DNS Domain dialog box appears.
2. In the Type the new DNS domain name text box, key the name of the Human Resources domain you specified in your namespace design, and click OK.
NOTE | When you create a domain within a zone, you specify the name for the new domain relative to the zone name. For example, to create the qa.contoso.com domain in the contoso.com zone, you would specify only the qa name in the New DNS Domain dialog box. |
3. Repeat steps 1 to 2 to create the domains for the Sales and Production departments from your namespace design.
Question 3 | What resource records appear in the new domains you created by default? Answer: There are no resource records in the domain by default. |
4. Leave the DNS Manager console open for the next exercise.
