More on DNS

by sidekick In reply to DNS and all that

If you have more than 1 DNS server listed in your client DNS settings, it will only go to the second one if the first one doesn't respond to the DNS query. If it connects to the first one and the first one, in this case the DC, can't resolve it, the DC responds that it can't find it. Since the client received a response, it doesn't try any more DNS servers.

So if you have an internet allowed client with,, and set as the DNS servers, it will only use if there is no response from the first two.

As far as the unexplained gateway address, check the IP settings on the client. I have seen manual settings stick after changing the client to DHCP.

Try this,

Install a secondary dns server, configure this server with a default gateway to the internet. Configure the Domain Controller with DNS to forward DNS queries for non-authoritative zones (such as internet names)to the secondary dns server.
