I have had my Windows 2000 Server fail, and due to this failure, have come to realize that I actually know almost nothing about the DNS server. (I followed the steps when setting up the server, and it all worked.) I know what DNS is supposed to do, but am not familiar with what everything is supposed to look like.
I am now getting DNS error messages from ISA server.
So, I need to know what to look for and the best means of correcting these issues.
Windows 2000 Server.
Domain is a .local setup.
I open DNS and can see the server, forward lookup zones, and reverse lookup zones, but have no idea what is supposed to be in both of these.
I have a satellite connection to the internet, and the IP Address for the satellite modem is dynamically assigned, (in case this affects anything). Ultimately, I want to be able to share this connection across the network, and in order to configure ISA server to do this, I need to correct the DNS errors.
Sooner is better with answers, (I need to have this internet connection shared yesterday. ~LOL~) so the value of this question is at 500.
So things I know:
DHCP scope for this office is the recommended 192.168.xxx.xxx format
Ip address to go out on the net is dynamically assigned.
What do I need to look at and correct to have my DNS working correctly?
