DNS and Active Directory problems

By mattrk ·
I'm running a single domain active directory. We have a primary server that does pretty much everything. (Active directory, dns, dhcp, etc.) The problem that i'm haveing is that for some reason i can not get my dns to point the domain of ocssaints.org to my webserver. The zone is titled ocssaints.org. I can add a host callled www and point it to my webserver, but i cant get just the domain to point to the web server.

As a result, if the user types in www.ocssaints.org, its works great! But... if they type just ocssaints.org, it goes to the active directory server.

In the dns setup, i see several entries that are setup that say (same as parent directory) -- 192.168.1.251 (the active directory server)

If i delet them and add one that points to my webserver, it just re adds it back.

Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

create a root hint in DNS. you might also create an alias in DNS. An Alias ocssaints.org which points to the target host <webserver>.com

I created a root hint in DNS that pointed ocssaints.org to its internal ip address. It didnt seem to help me. I also tried to creat an alias that pointed ocssaints.org to www.ocssaints.org. It gave me an error saying "The DNS name contains records that are incompatible with the CNAME record."

A few questions or clarifications:

1. Your internal DNS is the same as your webserver, correct? (ie: ocssaints.org)
2. Is your webserver locally available? ie: on the same LAN as everything else?
3. Do you use an ISA or proxy service?
4. Is your PC's default gateway your firewall?

Let me know.
