Voici mes quelques notes (enrichies de ressources complémentaires) prises lors de la session “Name Resolution 2008 Style : What's up with DNS, WINS and NetBios” animée avec brio par Mark Minasi (www.minasi.com) ce matin à TechEd EMEA 2008 IT Professionals :

Is NetfBios finally dead ?
Wins your days are numbered
unfortunately, though the number is pretty large

WINS
dans Windows Server 2008, WINS est une feature pas un rôle
IPv6 doesn't have clue about WINS/NetBios

Computer Browser
Service disabled by DEfault in a workgroup
Browser replacement : Network Discovery, off by default
Driven by multicast messages, not broadcasts

Network Discovery details
Built along Universal PnP lines
Advertisement / announcement go to multicast address 239.2552.255.250
uses UDP port 3702, TCP port 5357 (http), TCP Port 5358 (https)

DNS Server Changes
DNS is now multithreated
Can't accept updates until all zones are loaded

Installation de DNS dans Windows Server 2008
Installation classique : Servermanagercmd -install DNS
Installation Core : ocsetup DNS-Server-Core-Role      ==> ATTENTION CASE SENSITIVE
DNSCMD is now "in the box"
