Windows 2000 Server and DNS issue
Posted on 2004-09-27
I'm currently working on a Windows 2000 Server running service pack 4. Recently the server was taken offsite due to pending bad weather. The 2000 server is a domain controller and had a fixed ip address. The ip address was removed and set into dhcp mode to allow for windows updates in the foreign network. Now the static ip was placed back in and reconnect to the network. The client machines are able to attach and long in to the network but are unable to browse the internet. The dns forwarding is enable and has not been changed and yes there are valid dns ip's in there. I'm still unable to browse from either server or workstations.
The server's orginal ip address had the look back address of 127.0.0.1 in as the Preferred DNS server and yes the gateway is set for the router's ip.
Any suggestions on whats wrong?
