DNS – GlobalName Zone

Posted by chrisbeams on May 10, 2009

Spotted this after mention of something similar it in a meeting , looks like a good function in Windows 2008 as we all desperately try to move away from WINS.


This document can help you implement the Domain Name System (DNS) GlobalNames Zone feature on Microsoft® Windows Server™ 2008. The GlobalNames Zone is a new feature that provides single-label name resolution for large enterprise networks that do not deploy WINS and where using DNS name suffixes to provide single-label name resolution is not practical.
