I have a test 2008 box setup running active directory and DNS. When I run a query against DNS from my workstation (not part of the 2008 domain) the request times out.
I've done my best to research the issue and I found that it might be related to IPv6, so I unchecked IPv6 on the server adapters and also made the registry entry to disable IPv6. Furthermore I've gone into DNS and deleted out any IPv6 references...still when I query DNS I get a timeout.
When I query DNS from the server itself, it responds appropriately. It seems like the query from my machine isn't authorized but the same thing happened when I joined a laptop to the domain to test.
Any insight is appreciated.
