DNS configuration

By Eminent87 ·
Hi,

I'm running windows 2000 server as a pdc, dns sever and dhcp server. In addition, I have a dsl line coming in and all the clients are connected to the internet through the server. The server interal ip address is 192.168.0.1 with a 255.255.255.0 subnet. The problem I'm having is the client can't resolve to my internal dns server, I get the event id 1000 (windows machine on your network has a differnt DNS server then your domain controller). But when I change the preferred dns to the address of my server then the client can't browse the web. Are there any ways to work around this?

Try this:

1. Have all clients poin to YOUR DNS server for DNS resolution.
2. Have the server point to itself for DNS resolution.
3. Set up your ISP's DNS IP address as a forwarder.

The net effect is that all DNS queries that reference resources on your internal network are resolved by your DNS server. All queries that reference resources outside of your network (i.e. the Internet) will be forwarded to your ISP's DNS server.

Hope this helps.

I tried your suggestion but forwarder is not available because it is a root server. Is there another way to set the ip forwarder in windows 2000 server??

Answer is totally Right.You did not mention that your server is the root server when you installed the service.You have two options.
1) Completely rebuild the dns server after deleting the root server.
2)Change your root server to non-root.
The second option is the method I prefer and have used.
The procedure is.Install the resource kit tool on you 2000 cd,\\support\tools\2000rkst.Install kit.The dnscmd is the line you use to change your root server to Standard primary.From command prompt type dnscmd for options.For what you want is make it primary.
DNSCMD /ZONEDELETE /*.* DSDEL.
The star dot star removes the root,Remember "." is root domain.Now your dns server is Standard primary.FROM HERE ANSWER AS ANSWER STATES YOU WILL CONFIGURE FORWARDER FROM HERE. IT WILL RESOLVE.

It sounds like your DC is multi-homed. Is your DC running NAT? If so, be sure to have your IP configuration is correct (i.e. no gateway on the internal adapter). I would also disable the dynamic DNS registration of your external IP address. If you are not running NAT on the server, Install/configure RRAS.

Here's a link that walks you through the process:
