DNS Issue - Server 2003 and Server 2008
Posted on 2011-03-25
I promoted a new domain controller in my domain and transfered all of the FSMO roles to the new box. I also installed DNS on the newly promoted domain controller. I have the DNS statically defined on the network card to point to itself (the new box). However, if the old server turns off/shuts off, the new server cannot access the internet. How does this make sense, and, what could be wrong?
I have to enter something like 188.8.131.52 as a secondary DNS server and then I can get out to the web, but that shouldn't be the case.
Moreover, I cannot access exchange 2010 console when the old server is off..... i am assuming it is related to the DNS issue.
Any help would be appreciated.
