    under ipconfig /all does it say the DHCP server is the servers IP address?

    If so login go to Administrative Tools/DHCP and set the DHCP options for DNS server to the Domain controllers IP's.

    Thanks, I've found the culprit. The external DNS is set here... I'm at a loss for words right now.

    Sorry to hijack, but shouldn't both DCs DNS be set as

    Primary: Own IP Address
    Alternate: A.N.Other DNS Server IP Address

    rather than both pointing to DC1 as primary and DC2 as Alternate?

    Nope, that was what caused the issue in the OP to begin with

    Only time it would not have another DC as a secondary address is if you only have 1 DC

    I ment another local dc eg DC2

    ie Use yourself, unless something is wrong, then use the other dc on the network

    So DC1 would be;
    Primary: IP of DC1
    Alternate: IP of DC2

    and DC2 would be;
    Primary: IP of DC2
    Alternate: IP of DC1

    Yes, which was post 3 in the thread

    DC's always reference themselves, then the IP of another DC where possible.

    Post #3 was why I asked, it says both DC1 and DC2 should have IP of DC1 as primary and IP of DC2 as secondary, should it not be reversed on DC2
