the (.) root zone and forwarders & root hints
Posted on 2002-06-09
I run a Windows 2000 Web server with 2 clients (both Windows 2000) and have some questions about the (.) root zone and forwarders & root hints. 1st off what is the difference and which should I be running?
I notice in the logs on my Clients that they are logging a lot of errors with regard to no Domain Controller found? My guess is that I do not have my DNS set up correctly. My clients DNS point to my ISP's DNS because if I point to my Servers internal IP I can't get out to the internet but it appears to eliminate the errors in the client logs. When I change my clients back to my ISP's DNS I can get back out to the internet but my logs start to fill up agin.
So, I'm "assuming" that my DNS is not set up correctly. Can someone give me some advice and some pointers.
