DNS worries on Server 2008 R2
Posted on 2011-02-17
I successfully setup a Server 2008 R2 for a company yesterday and moved everyone to the new domain. New enterprise grade wireless APs as well. Everything rolled along just fine.
This morning they called with a weird issue.
They could not access *some* websites.
Cnn.com was OK.
Google.com NOT OK.
Tv2.dk NOT OK.
I RDPed the server without issue and pinged these websites. All sites resolved and answered with the correct IP and chucking the IP in the browser would open the sites. Still, the sites would not open if I just typed the URL.
There is *nothing* apparent in the event logs.
Finally I rebooted the server and everything was back to normal...
What might be going on here?
