Chapter 4.2. DNS and Active Directory > The DNS Resource Records

The DNS Resource Records

A resource record is simply an entry in the DNS database. Resource records map the names of servers or services to their location, much the way that the Windows Internet Name Service (WINS) did in previous versions of Windows NT. This referenced location can be either the physical Internet Protocol (IP) address or the name of the server.

Table 4.2.1 lists some of the common resource record types that you will encounter in Windows 2000.
