Hi All,

We have a 3rd party company setting up an application for us and their tech guy emailled to say he is seeing Internal and External DNS issues.

I've done several NSLOOKUP, which work fine.  What other checks can i do?


Many thanks

Tell him to send you the test criteria and the results.
If you're internal and he is external then your could easily be getting different information depending on the DNS servers that you are querying.

Be more specific as to the errors encountered.

Hi detox1978,

You can also check the DNS Event logs in Active Directory.  You can try pinging other servers internally and websites externally (ie- www.google.com) and see if it show good results.

Thanks.  Turns out it was a false positive.  The 3rd party company were view a server they dont have access too.
