The DNS server encountered a packet addressed to itself on IP address 192.168.1.254.

I get this warning constantly, I have one server a sbs 2003.  I've read I should not have server ip address listed as dns on server lan settings.  but if I don't and it is the only dns server on network.  then I can't browse to companyweb site locally.  so what am I supposed to do.  I can believe that microsoft has designed their server to only work with multiple servers

What is your network topology?
Could you post an "ipconfig /all" ?
If you need to hide any information in the output please use ***
Thank you,

No, Microsoft has not designed their server to only work with multiple servers... SBS is designed to be a stand-alone server in most cases.  (although you CAN add more if you like, it's totally not necessary).

Please post an IPCONFIG /ALL and we'll help you sort it out.

You need to remove 206.13.29.12, 206.13.30.12, 4.2.2.2, 192.168.1.1 from DNS servers, the only one you need is the SBS server IP Address 192.168.1.254

Then after you do that, you need to rerun the Configure Email and Internet Connection Wizard (CEICW -- which is linked as Connect to the Internet in the Server Management Console > Internet and Email)

A visual how-to is here:  http://sbsurl.com/ceicw and a full networking overview for SBS is at http://sbsurl.com/msicw

When you run that, you will put 206.13.29.12 and 206.13.30.12 as your DNS forwarders.
