Dual-Homed Win2K Server- LONG BOOT time

By courtney ·
I have a dual-homed Win2K server. Once I installed AD and DNS the PC takes 10 minutes to boot-up. I have seen this a lot and I am sure it has to do with the way I have DNS setup..

I just can't find any articles on how to fix this. I seen lots of articles where people have had this happen before, but no real good answers.

Can you help?

Dual-Homed Win2K Server- LONG BOOT time

by MithGarvis In reply to Dual-Homed Win2K Server- ...

As I have told my students and clients alike: DNS is the root of all evil. If your computer is running slow, check DNS. As such it is not one of the simpler products to deal with, and is the reason MCPs and MCSEs spend so much time in school.

The only advice I can give you is to make sure that your Forward Lookup Zone is correctly configured and pointing to a functioning DNS server, and that your Reverse Lookup Zone (MUCH simpler) is properly set.

My best advice is that if you are not intimately familiar with DNS, and you are running a small personal network, point to your ISP's DNS server in the forward lookup zone, and allow zone transfers. Otherwise remove DNS from your computers and point to the ISP directly!
