The WMI DNS provider fills a much-needed gap for programmatic management of a Microsoft DNS environment. In this chapter, we reviewed how to install the DNS provider, including some of the caveats for using it on Windows 2000. We then covered the classes used for managing server configuration along with each of the available server settings. Next, we showed how to create and manipulate zones with the DNS provider. Finally, we covered the various resource record types and their associated WMI classes.
