  2. I haven't had a requirement to use DNSSEC in any version of Windows, however, I do know with Windows 2003 there's limited support. The following are my notes on it, which are rather limited. However, I hope you find them helpful.

    DNSSEC and TrustedAnchors

    Trustedanchors and DNSSEC (DNS security) is a new
    industry implementation that is now offered in Windows 2008 R2. It's a new
    feature that when you implement it, it associates a certificate (or key) to
    a zone in DNS. The feature is optional during DNS installation, which
    will then allow DNS security, which then you have to setup a trustedanchor.

    There is limited DNSSEC support in Windows Server 2003 DNS. Windows 2003 can act
    as a secondary DNS server for an existing DNSSEC-compliant zone. Windows
    clients will cache DNSSEC resource records, but perform no cryptography,
    authentication, or verification. Perhaps to get full functionality in Windows 2003,
    you can implementing DNSSEC running BIND on Windows. For full Windows native
    functionality, you would have to upgrade to Windows 2008 to get full DNSSEC support.
    See the following link for more information.
