DNS, Single NIC SBS setup

By allans ·
Recently upgraded from Win server 2K to Win server 2k3 SBS. running an proliant(ML570G2-rack). Having issue with companyweb is only avail able when users log in to remote work space! even if they are using a system on the domain. I assume this is Dns issue as we currently only have a single NIC I would welcome any further thoughts on cause or sugesstions.

Thanks

Could you clarify?

I'm not sure what you mean by logging to the "remote work space." Do you mean connecting remotely from another location, or do you mean connecting using a different URL or IP address?

Remote Work space is option on the default page for web access.

I have a work around. Using Sonicwall for Dhcp and as my clients DNS were routed to external servers, no resolution to Companyweb. So I removed the external DNS setting from my clients and routed them through internal Dns. Added a forward record from my internal dns to pass on any unhandled requests to the external DNS.

Works for now, once management loosens the purse string may be able to deploy SBS in more appropriate way.

If you have any other suggestion I would welcome any assistance.

Thanks for your time

hate to say this but...you should NOT use your SonicWall as a DHCP server on the LAN. Your SonicWall TZ 170 DHCP will not register client entires in DNS on the SBS box.

I would suggest that you disable the DHCP server on the SonicWall, rerun the SBS setup wizard and include the default addressing range and subnet mask for DHCP to run on the SBS box.

I've seen a few setups like this [not only with the SonicWall but other external firewalls where the IT tech used the firewalls DHCP server and all those networks have problems of some sort or another with the services running on the SBS box].
