dns

When users within the organization are trying to access a website without the www   it cant find it. They can find it with the www though. Anywhere else outside the organization can access both with the www and without it.

Correction.... that circumstance only happens when i try to access it from the server. The users cannot see the website with www and without it. i know it has to do with dns somewhere, but im not sure wat to do.

We need some more information to help you.  Is this a windows domain?  do you run DNS service from your server? go to run ->cmd.exe->ipconifg /all paste results here
then walk us through how your DNS service is configured, does it use forwarders? etc..

Once we have this information we can get you all hooked up =)

Do the above from your server and then a workstation, post results for both, thanks.

It is a windows domain, I run dns from this server and a backup server. One question on the loopback, if i put loopback in the network config on the DNS server, I shouldn't have the IP of the server in there as well right? I see forward lookup zones and reverse lookup zones.... not sure if thats what u meant by forwarders. Im not the most DNS savy.

disregard the same physical address of workstation and server, i just looked at the workstations ipconfig and modified the server paste i already had on this post.

The problem seems to have fixed itself somehow.... but i was getting event id 6702 for DNS errors in eventvwr. Would still like to know what happened.
MazaraatCommented:
The error 6702 relates to the server receiving an error while trying to update its replication partners DNS.  I would go to the server that had the error, open DNS management mmc, connect to the other DNS server(s) make sure there is only ONE DNS record for the server you are currently on.  Look for old or incorrect A records.  Then perform the same function from the other server.


I think this may be the root of your DNS error:
Excerpt from link:
"If you have two or more DNS servers, each DNS server should point to the other DNS as primary DNS and itself as the secondary."
