Issues with migrated SBS 03 Server not able to browse to web

HI there,

Recently I converted a Physical SBS 03 Server into a Virtual Machine now running on ESXi. It's on a completely different network at a completely different location.

The issue now is that its not resolving to the web. It receives connections. I can RDP into the server just fine.

I've attempted to replicate the network & DNS settings.

In the network card, I have:

IP: 10.1.0.24
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 10.1.0.1
DNS: 10.1.0.24, 208.67.220.220, 208.67.222.222

I have also made sure the DNS server is running. I've changed the A Record of this machine name and services running on the machine under DNS Server.
I've also reset and cleared all cache etc I could find. A Restart etc. No Luck.

It's worth noting that at one point I managed to browse to a few sites before that stopped working.

Any ideas, let me know

First, only use 10.1.0.24 for the DNS.  That is because AD relies on DNS and I am presuming 208.67.220.220 and 208.67.222.222 don't know anything about your SBS 2003 AD?

Okay...  From there...  How about your forwards on your DNS server on the SBS 2003 box?  Right-click on the DNS server via the DNS MMC and select Properties.

Forward = 208.67.220.220

I'll adjust DNS. I did try the above, but it wasn't working.

Are you sure the DNS 208.67.220.220 is operating and responding correctly?

Is the firewall enabled on the SBS 2003 box?  Any other firewalls along the way that could be blocking DNS (TCP/UDP 53)?  As a test, you can issue from a command line prompt "telnet 208.67.220.220 53" and see if it hangs (so a connection is made) rather than instant disconnect or rejection.

Bingo!

The hosting company the server is now wiht actually have a local DNS server. I entered that and it worked. I'll get them to open the firewall ports and we should be on our way.

Thanks a million!
