DNS question

Hi,

I have a network with one domain controller (Windows 2000 Server) and a member server Windows 2003. My Windows 2000 server is at IP address 192.168.10.10 and my Windows 2003 Server is at IP 192.168.10.100. My router which supports NAT is at 192.168.10.1

The DNS settings for the servers are:
Windows 2000
Primary DNS: 192.168.10.10
Secondary DNS:  192.168.10.1

Windows 2003
Primary DNS: 127.0.0.1
Secondary DNS:  192.168.10.1

Is this correct? Because I get all sorts of strange DNS cannot update A record, etc messages in my Windows 2003 machine. Should the one server refer to the other? What is the correct Microsoft proposed practise?

Thanks

I suspect you Domain controller is your DNS server. If that is the case update your DNS settings as follows.

The DNS settings for the servers are:
Windows 2000
Primary DNS: 192.168.10.10
Secondary DNS:  NONE

Windows 2003
Primary DNS: 192.168.10.10
Secondary DNS:  NONE

On the DNS server goto administrative tools DNS
righ click your dns server and select properties, then select the forwarders tab
add the following dns server ip addreses 192.168.10.1 and 4.2.2.2 or you can locate your ISP DNS servers and add those here instead.

if I assumed incorrectly on the server used for DNS just replace 192.168.10.10 with 192.168.10.100 in both servers primary DNS field.
