2008 DNS Issue

Posted on 2009-04-28
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
My AD Integrated DNS Server on respond to DNS requests that I make on the box itself, but not from other boxes.  So, for instance, if I use NSLOOKUP against running it on, DNS requests for internal and external domains work correctly.

However, if I move over to another box, and use NSLOOKUP against the queries, both internal and external, fail.

I have already checked the firewall to make sure the DNS rules are in place.  I also deleted and re-added them to make sure that there was not an issue there.

In case it matters, my server is multihomed with the second adapter on  However, in DNS settings, I psecified that DNS should only be bound to the first address,

This one has me a bit baffled.  Any help appreciated.

    Update:  This IS a firewall issue and I am trying to track it down right now.  
    When I turn off the firewall I can get DNS reolution form other computers.
    Although the default DNS firewall rule is active, it is not letting DNS traffic through.  When I add an explicit rule to allow UDP port 53 to all programs DNS form other computers starts to work.
