Windows 2000 DNS not returning correct address
Posted on 2009-05-05
I have a Windows 2000 server running DNS. I have the DNS setup to redirect my website addresses to a local address (10.1.1.x) instead of the public IP. I did this because it doesn't work to "go out nd come back in" to get to my websites. (Is this true? or am I not doing something correctly?)
My DHCP will push DNS entries to my users with my internal DNS server listed first then my two external ISP DNS servers listed second and third. This works 95% of the time. The other 5% of the time, my DNS server doesn't appear to give the internal IP address for my websites. It would appear that my DNS isn't replying and then the request hits the external DNS servers to get external IP address.
Is this a Win2k bug? or do I not have it configured correctly? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
