I basically just want to know if my dns server is running properly. I followed instructions from support.Microsoft.com.
I have two nic cards in my server, I upgraded to AD, AD installed DNS for me. I installed DHCP on one nic card and that works properly 192.168.xxx.xxx. The clients do pick up the DHCP scope addresses. I added a new Host (A) name.domain.com (the right ip address). Can't ping it though. :-(
I'm about to make the other nic card static from my isp. I'm scared cause i had to enable ICS on one nic for my client computers can get to the internet. Is this the right way of doing things? I am getting a firewall put in, but money is tight.
