Hi

I have just migrated sbs 2003 to sbs 2003. the only issue i have is that rras is handing out the address of the old box as DNS server. all is well onsite, DHCP gives out the correct address but when connecting via vpn / rras we get the wron address.

I cant see anything in DHCP or rras pointing to this address. DHCP services are configured on the same box as the RRAS services (SBS 2008)

Any ideas guys?

Thanks

Check that RRAS is using the right NIC to obtain the DNS Settings.

In RRAS, right click the server -> properties -> IP tab

Down the bottom of the IP tab there is a drop down where you look what adapter is being used to pick up the DNS address from.  Is this set to the right NIC, and does that NIC have the right DNS settings?
