Hello, I am setting up a new server, which has AD. I've put the server onto an isolated segment so that it doesn't conflict with my other server because it has the same domain name. Eventually, my goal is to remove the other domain server and make this the domain server for the domain. My domain is small so this will be no problem.

Since my server is on an isolated segment I've just setup a basic DNS service. Now, when I try to install Exchange 2007 I get an error that says:

Warning: Setup cannot verify that the 'Host (A) record for this computer exists within the DNS database on server

This machine has DNS loaded but for some reason I am still getting this error. Is it because I have not put in the DNS IP address from my provider? What do I need to do to get rid of this message? Btw, I've also flushed my DNS.
