DNS problems: Non existent domain
Posted on 2008-06-19
Ok here is the deal.
I have a server running windows 2003 server. This server is configged to do everything: DNS, DGCP, EMAIL etc.
I have a workgroup in the office. I am trying to put all the puters from the workgroup into the new domain that i created on the wind 2003 server computer.
I can ping the IP address of the win2003 server from another puter on the workgroup but i cannot ping it by name.
I have researched for hours. I believe my DNS server is configged correctly all the way down to the PTR in the reverse lookup zone. I am not toally sure about my forward lookup zones though. Could a problem in there be causing this?
I have done NSLOOKUP and it still says domain not found. BUT it does find the IP address. It just leaves it blank by server name........then at other times it says it cannot find server name.
It looks like my server can be found by the workgroup by IP but not be name.
