Win03 DNS Confusion: Primary DNS Not Resolving WWW record
Posted on 2004-11-29
Strange things happening and I don't know why: Server 1 (10.1.1.12) is my primary DNS, PDC, DHCP, and primary WINS. Server 2 (10.1.1.13) is my web server and acts as secondary DNS, and secondary WINS. Here is the problem: when I try to access the company website from server one (via relative URL), I end up getting my router login screen. I can access the site using the IP (10.1.1.13). I have checked my www record in DNS and it appears correct; pointing to 10.1.1.13. I am using the following DNS entries on Server 1: 10.1.1.12, 184.108.40.206, 220.127.116.11
Bad news: it doesn't happen all the time! I can't put a finger on when or how it happens and it is driving me bonkers. Also, some clients on the domain experience the same problem (but not all users). I don't know if this is a DNS issue, a WINS issue, or some other dumb thing that I've done to screw up the name resolution.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
