I have a domain controller that is running Win2K. Somehow, someone entered in the DC's own IP address as the primary DNS server. Whne I try and go in and fix this mistake the Properties Dialog box for the adapter in question, pops up on the screen but shows no data (all fields are blank or greyed out). Within thirty seconds of being displayed it dispappears as well as the whole desktop gets cleaned off except the background color then the Desktop reloads in it's default state but no properties box for the NIC.
I have tried this logged in as Administrator which has full Domain wide rights. I have alos tried correcting this in Safe mode. All with the same outcome. I also tried setting upo the secondary NIC with the correct IP's only to have it show up and disappear just like NIC #1.
My domain is running correctly and all the other servers in the domain have the correct DNS entries so no issues their. It's just that I can't see the outside world with the DC. This is a real issues especially considering MS Updates and AV updates are not accessible at this moment. Please help!!!!!
