I have a working OWA front end in the DMZ.
I'm looking at the NIC card settings and the Preferred DNS server is itself, the alternate DNS if fine and in the inturnal network.

Looking at the OWA server, looking at DNS settings on that server, nothing is set up. DNS is running but has no entrys.

My questions is: should the OWA server be pointing the Preferred DNS server to itself when there are no records in the local DNS service.

My bigger problem is that users are seeign slow access on the weekends with this server.

As the machine is a member of the domain it should be using domain controllers ONLY for DNS. Not itself or anything else (unless it is installed on a domain controller).
