DNS Failure - No EventID

By TekWannaBe ·

I have a W2K3 box running the DNS Service that appears to just cease to function; no one is albe to surf the web. The reason I say appear is because we do an nslookup on the dc and we get request time out....we stop and restart the dns server/client then everything starts working again.

Any idea what could be going on here?

did you see this:
DNS clients may not be able to access sites where the CNAME resource record for the site has been cached on a Windows Server 2003 DNS server

Did you set timeout=10 or something else... just change the default because it's like 2 seconds and that's not enough in many cases?
If you still have the problem, did you try to check the servive state in the list of services in windows... to see if it was stopped? And eventually just restart the service instead of restarting the server?

It may be a wrong set of command that just ask the dns to stop. A backup, an update or something like that???
