A. To configure DNS, you usually use the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) DNS snap-in; however, Microsoft supplies a new command-line tool, dnscmd.exe, as part of the support tools collection. You can either install all the support tools or simply extract dnscmd.exe as follows:
- Insert the Windows 2000 CD-ROM.
- Navigate to the \Support\Tools folder.
- Right-click support.cab, and select Explore from the context menu.
- Locate dnscmd.exe, right-click it, and select Extract from the context menu.
- Select a location to save the file to (somewhere within your PATH environment variable unless you want to type the full path every time you use the command).
- After you install the tool, use the following syntax:
dnscmd \[<target server>\] <command> \[<command options>\]
