Course Description

In this Challenge Lab, you will implement domain name resolution. First, you will manipulate name resolution by using a hosts file. Next, you will use nslookup to confirm local DNS resolutions. Finally, you will configure DNS by creating forward and reverse lookup zones and defining A (address) and PTR (pointer) records. Note: Once you begin the challenge lab, you will not be able to pause, save, or exit and then return to your challenge lab. Please ensure that you have set aside enough time to complete the challenge lab before you start.
