1 server - Windows 200 ad vanced server w/AD and DNS installed
1 workstation Windows 2000 Pro

The server event error is :

Event Type:        Warning
Event Source:        NETLOGON
Event Category:        None
Event ID:        5781
Date:                7/31/2004
Time:                9:51:57 AM
User:                N/A
Computer:        3RD-STONE001
Description:
Dynamic registration or deregistration of one or more DNS records failed because no DNS servers are available.
Data:
0000: 2a 23 00 00               *#..    

Now I have configured the TCP/IP Advanced DNS 2 ways

192.168.1.1  DNS Server Address
204.127.198.4  ISP DNS Primary
63.240.76.4     ISP DNS Secondary

With this setup the error from events  goes away but the server can not browse the web
If I move the DNS server IP to the bottom of the list and reboot the error returns,  and the the server can now browse the web

Hi

The usual way to set this up on the server is:

In admin toolds-dns - delete the "." zone from the forward lookup zone, then conifgure forwarders to your isp's dns servers. Right click the server object in dns, then add your isp's dns servers in the forwarders list. MAke sure your dns server is also set for dynamic updates - right click the forward look up zone mydomain.com, click properties and under general tab enable dynamic updates.

In tcp/ip the only ONLY entry on the server in primary dns server should be it's own ip. Also the servers ip should also be listed in the clients dns servers too. This way the server forwards any unresolved dns queries to your isp's nameservers,

Hopefully this should help
