    Can anyone recommend a good book for covering DNS within AD? After the 291, it has left me interested. :blink

    I was thinking of this one.

    Cheers

    The definitive guide - highly recommended. I have the 2000 version and haven't yet got the 2K3 one, but if it's as good as that, then you cannot get better.

    If you want to know more about DNS then the classic book is "DNS and BIND" from O'Reilly.

    My edition here is old, but I'm sure it has been updated.

    While it won't mention AD or Windows at all, it *will* give you a solid background to DNS. (IMHO)

    O'Reiley's DNS on Windows 2003.

    EDIT: Just realised that was what Zeb recommended.

    Im with Harry on this one. This book (Ive got the old one too), realy sinks you into DNS. It really helped me understand it. However, like harry said It doesnt realy go into windows, but from what I can remember, It refers to UNIX evert now and again.:biggrin

    IMHO there is no such thing as 'too many books'. :biggrin

    No, you definately are not dreaming. One is DNS. One is DNS within Active Directory :D

    My book count is more in the direction of 600. Just counting the tech books. In fact my studie has bookshelf on 3 walls out of 4. They are filled. In the attick I also have 4 book cabinets, filled and in the livingroom I have 3 more, half of those are tech books.
    No, you can not have to many books.

    (What shall we give Frank for his birthday? How about a book? No, he allready has a book.)

    lol. I bet there are some that you bought, thinking they would be handy, but have hardly even opened!!

    Looking at my bookshelf, I think I have a few (Object oriented Perl, Real world SQL server Administration with Perl). But still, I am sure I WILL need them sooner or later. he he :p

    Wow! I used to have quite a few books two but learnt my lesson when I was moving house. I sadly had to get rid of quite a lot of outdated tech books, so now am a big fan of ebook instead:biggrin
