Windows Server 2003 R2

khinton
Problem:
Windows Server 2003 R2, server keeps locking out Remote Desctop Users. If I change the DNS numbers around i.e. Prefered to Alternate and visa versa, the sever can then get on the internet, Remote Desktop users can log on, and you can ping the server IP. The next day the same thing happens Remote users can gett on, cna;t ping, can't browse internet. Change the prefered and alternate DNS server around and all works again until the next day and the same again. Can't find why this is happening. HELP!!!!!

    if so did you change the DNS options to reflect the change in prefered servers?

    what is your prefered dns servers that work? the local network DNS or your ISP DNS?

    typically for users to get to the internet, they need the ISPs DNS servers to get there,...typically prefered are your local network DNS servers and when it can't resolve the query, it will forward the query out to root hint servers for an answer.

    Yes we are running a DHCP, but the users(Workstations) are not affected, they can still use the internet etc. and the DNS is the server DNS not the ISP DNS, the only time the worlstations are affected is if the DHCP uses the server for both DNS and gateway, so DNS is server and gateway is the Cisco router.
