basically i have a new domain and web access is slowish and often page not found is returned!
the old domain all is fine.

Old domain pc's gateways point to a firewall which connects to a router and then the internet. This firewall has it own DNS IP's - WEB DNS from our ISP - there is no internal DNS server here.

The new domain is a server 2008 domain setup with 2 DC's - each acting as DNS servers. All computers on the lan point to these for DNS and there gateway is the same firewall as the old domain.

would the DNS be conflicting here? and causing the issues on the new domain?

Hi,

Try the following:
Add forwarders to your 2008 DNS servers.
Open DNSmanager Right on your DNS server name and select Properties
Select the forwardars tab.
Now enter the addresses of 2 ISP DNS servers.

When DNS cannot be resolved by your server it will pass the request to the forwards who will in turn reply with the answer back to your DNS server.

Hope this solves your problem.
