  • What does _msdsc actually stand for?

    Hi guys,

    I'm doing some test installs of W2k3 DC's for my MCSA. Looking under the zones in the DNS utility, on the DC, I was just wondering what _msdsc stands for? The first 2 letters are probably obvious but the last 3?

    I can see it must be an acronym for something, but i cant find the answer on google!!

        And what precisely is wrong with "Chaos" (or possibly "Catastrophe")?

          Hi,

          It is not "_msdsc", It is _msdcs (Here "_" indicates that it's a SRV record and dcs implies for "domain controller services")

              _msdcs is a subdomain and not an SRV record.
