    Exclamation DNS

    i don't know if any one else has came across this but for some reason some of our kids can get on the Internet and then some cant

    if you have 1 zone on the primary dns server zone called zyx.local and in an active directory integrated do you need to setup zone transfers from the primary and 2ndry server cus i'm sure you have too don't you ?? (don't like this integrated stuff even though i know its good) as some times our internal traffic isnt getting resolved e.g. our intra net site. even though nothing has changed in dns or dhcp dns thats sets the dns for the kids. but what is also weird our department can get on the Internet with out any probs and we have rebooted the servers last night but still have this prob

    if its AD integrated and DNS is installed onto an additional server then you can cancel the zone wizard during install and just wait for it to add the zone itself.

    The other thing to check is that the DNS server thinks it's OK - in the management console, right click the server, do properties and then monitoring - tick both tests and see what happens.

    try a few nslookups using your isp's dns servers to see if one of them is failing, it could be those that are at fault if all your local lookups always work
