DNS resolve on Win2000 client does not work
Posted on 2003-11-18
I am in the process of installing a new W2K SP2 system. All was working fine until I apparently made a mistake somewhere. DNS lookups worked fine. IE, outlook and SMB shares worked fine.
While I was debugging a printer performance issue I decided to install the NetBEUI protocol to see if that had some impact. It had not so I removed it again. Since then I cannot do DNS queries. Only a ping to the SMB server works and a ping to my own local hostname. E.g. ping myhost works, ping server works. Ping server.mydomain.top does not work. Same for external domains.
The DNS server works and seems to be configured correctly in the W2K client. Actually this has not changed and worked before. A dns resolve works fine from other clients.
I've spend a lot of time figuring out what happened but can't find the answer. Could you give me a hint.
