I have a brand new SBS 2008 server that is having some DNS problems that I have been unable to resolve.
Domain member PCs cannot ping the server by its FQDN, and a ping -a against the server IP returns no server name.
An nslookup on the local domain name returns an error stating "Can't find server name fro address 192.168.1.2: Timed Out
In the DNS event log on the server itself I have multiple event ID 800's stating "The zone domain.local is configured to accept updates but the A record for the primary server in the zone's SOA record is not available on this DNS server. This may indicate a configuration problem. If the address of the primary server for the zone cannot be resolved DNS clients will be unable to locate a server to accept updates for this zone. This will cause DNS clients to be unable to perform DNS updates"
An nslookup on the server itself returns
On the server a ping against server.domain.local returns the IPv6 address.
At this point I've verified that the forward and reverse lookup zones are both created and that the SOA and NS records for both are correct. The SOA is server.domain.local, and an A record exists resolving that to 192.168.1.2. The PTR record for that entry is also in existence. I've also run the Fix My Network Wizard, and the only DNS related issue it shows is that there is a forwarder configured. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
