Tip of the Day: Windows Server 2016 DNS – Deploying a File-Based DNS Server on Nano

Administration of DNS, like all other Nano features, must be performed remotely through management consoles, PowerShell scripting, or utilities. See the following resource for more information on installing and managing the DNS Server role service on Nano Server:
