Where is DNS for external sites on windows 2003 DNS server

Posted on 2009-12-17

My clients all have our DC as their primary and secondary DNS. When they are going to a site such as they must query the DNS server for this I would think. For internal DNS resolving I see all the mappings in dnsmgmt under the server name, forward lookup zones, reverse lookup zones... where does it keep mappings for external domains? Or is this not how it works?

    Open up Administrative Tools and get the DNS console going. Right-click on the server itself and choose Properties. Click the Forwarders tab. The entries in the bottom of this window are where your server sends requests it has no answer for.
