Can I reinstall DNS on a windows 2003 SBS server
Posted on 2004-11-26
My old favourite DNS Server is causing me problems again!! I have begun to look a fter a network fro a new client. (1 server 15 clients) they are running 2003 SBS. They are plagued by very slow logins and very slow access to exchange from the Outlook Clients. The server IP is 192.168.1.2
The DHCP Server gives us 192.168.1.2 as the default gateway and the Primnary DNS which normally ensures that logins are fast. However on closer inspection it looks as though the defaults have been changed. Under the DNS server there are 3 items.. Foward Look up Zone, Reverse Lookup Zone and Event View. The Foward lookmup Zone only has one item in it. I am pretty sure there should be alot more than this...am i mistaken?? the reverse look up Zone does not have entries.
is there a way of reinstalling the DNS server so that ALL of the standard entries are included. The only change i need to make to the default settings is to add a forwarder.
thanks in advance
