I have just taken on a job as a new Sys Admin for a local small business. They have a very old DNS server (8 years old) running Windows server 2000. This server provides access for about 20 to 30 clients. We are wanting to upgrade to a new server, but before I do I was looking for a general overview of replacing an old DNS server as this will be my first time doing so. Obviously security is a must and I am familiar with using Active directory but have never setup from the beginning.
Specifically what I am looking for is:
- What are some commonly missed security holes
- Basic overview of what to do (or where to look for an overview)
- Best practices for initial setup
