Change method

To change the value of this entry, use Dnscmd.exe, a tool included with the Windows 2000 Support Tools. The change is effective immediately; you do not have to restart the DNS server.

Activation method

DNS reads its registry entries only when it starts. You can change entries while the DNS server is running by using Dnscmd.exe. If you change entries by editing the registry, the changes are not effective until you restart the DNS server.

Note Image Note

DNS creates the DNS Server Log in Event Viewer when you install the DNS and restart the system. Until you restart, DNS writes its events to the System Log in Event Viewer.
