you want your primary DNS server to be your win2k DNS server. If you have an additional DNS server, you can put that as the secondary.

Then, on go into DNS, right-click on the server, properties, forwarders tab. Here you add your ISP's DNS servers, and make sure you checkmark 'Do Not Use Recursion'.

Also, right-click on your DNS zone (ie. company.com), properties. Make sure your zones are configured for dynamic updates.

Are you trying to use Active Directory (AD)?

If so, that is the root of your problem. Active Directory will not work correctly (or at all for that matter) witout DNS being hosted locally.

Most (if not all) ISPs will not allow your AD Domain to make the necessary changes to their DNS tables to allow AD to work properly.

You MUST set up a local DNS server as suggested in Answer 1.

It gets worse. The only way to get this working correctly is to run dcpromo (demoting your Domain Controller and deleting AD). Then set up DNS properly. The run dcpromo again (recreating your AD domain and pointing it to your local DNS server.

Your server DNS is incorrect. First you must configure your DNS correctly. Remove the root reference in your DNS manager that is the . Now you can configure your local DNS domain with forwarders (your IPS DNS servers) Then one the server's NIC DNS put just the primary 127.0.0.1 or its own IP address. Now your DNS is configured correctly do a search a www.microsoft.com/technet for some good articles with instructions for correctly configuring 2000 DNS. Q300202 should be the one that will get you going.
