I have setup and installed two new servers and used one of the old servers. The new servers are both running Windows Server 2008. When I was on the phone with Microsoft I asked their advice on how I should run the DNS because both servers were taking forever to reboot (slow reboots usually mean DNS issue). They suggested to run the main server's local adapter DNS as 127.0.0.1 with no forwarders in the DNS server. Then they said to run the main servers IP # for the local adapter DNS for the other two servers. Doing this did not help or speed up things. I have attached a sheet of my network and all the settings and would like advice on what would be the best way to set the DNS both in the local adapter and the DNS server so my servers run faster. I run profiles so when the client logs off or reboot it takes forever!!! It is also taking about 6 hours for mail. Before we were getting the mail in less than 10 minutes. I know that the slow reboots and the 6 hours or more for mail are related to the DNS settings. I need to know what would be the best way to configure the DNS settings in the local adapters on all three servers and in the DNS Server settings on the two servers. I am not real up on DNS so all input would be greatly appreciated and please explain in detail so I understand what you are saying. If you could just change the settings on the attachment with the way that I should configure all DNS and send back to me that would be wonderful!
