DNS Issues With 2000 Server Network and External Icehouse ISP Mail Exchanger and Website Hosting
Posted on 2006-11-21
I have one win 2000 domain controller using active directory. I have not been successful implementing dhcp or dns because of the following issue. My isp is icehouse.net. They have provided us with a soho gateway that is serving my internal network with their dns numbers and scope 192.168.0.50 through 18.104.22.168 as we configured it to. We want to disable the gateway dhcp and utilize our own dhcp dns services. The domain controller is statically assigned 192.168.0.2 and is excluded. The dns and dhcp servers (internal) have been activated and configured but when I do the mail services are not functional and the website is not accessible. The mail services and website are both managed by icehouse. We have purchased the domain parksmedical.com and pay also for hosting and mail. I had my dhcp scope issue gateway 192.168.0.1, dns 192.168.0.2. The dns and dhcp are both on the domain controller 192.168.0.2 I know it is not recommended but have done this before with no issues. I configured my dns server to foreward requests to icehouse dns if not reconciled and of coarse disabled the Actiontec Gateway dhcp services while testing for implementation. After activation and refresth of my dhcp/dns servers mail services on outlook clients fail for both smtp and pop. I have tried entering the mail exchanger info in dns server forword lookup for parksmedical.com as parent domain parksmedical.com, host or domain parksmedical and mail server mail.parksmedical.com but no mail service still and cant view the website. What did I miss?
