SBS2003 DNS not working
Posted on 2010-09-21
I’ve got a situation where by SBS2003 server can’t seem to do a DNS lookup. I know what caused the problem, but I’m not sure how to fix it. Here's the details:
Completely functions system: SBS Server and all client computers worked fine. All systems, including the SBS have the SBS's IP (192.168.1.200) hard coded as the DNS server. We were using a DSL line to connect to the internet, attached via cable modem to router. Router provides DHCP functions.
Today, changed from DSL to high-speed cable. Faster, cheaper... Anyway, now DNS is not working. If I configure a client system to get DNS automatically, bingo... the client works great. So I know the pipeline to the internet is functioning correctly. So, the SBS is now not able to see the new DNS servers...
Question: How/Where do I tell the SBS the IP's of the new DNS servers? I don't recall setting this 4 years ago when we got the DSL line but I must have done something... I tried hard-coding the DNS IP's on the SBS network card IP, but that didn’t help.
I ran internet connections wizard but it didnt help.
