Check DNS

by mmauer In reply to Windows Server 2003 R2

Check if DNS is working correctly.

Also try writing the whole Server name
To see what your Domain is called go to
start --> settings --> control Panel --> System

click on the "Computer Name" tab and look next to where it sais Domain:

Also Nslookup is a good way to check your dns see if you can go to
start --> run --> cmd

nslookup ip-addrees-of-your-server
nslookup srv_name
