The other day I was having a problem with GPO scripts not being pushed out. I found that the problem was DNS related, and if I went to the client machines and specified The DNS server (in the local area connection properties) as my SBS server then the scripts work fine.
However now I have a different problem. Some web pages won't open like http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir.dll?prd=ie&clcid=0x0409&pver=6.0&ar=home
for example (this site should just redirect me to MSN's homepage).
Another example is my company has our own website. This website is hosted by a third party company. When I try to access our site I either get "The Page Cannot be Displayed" error or I am redirected to an open dns search engine. When I ping our site I get "Ping request could not find host (site name). Please check the name and try again".
I know our site is working because I can access it from the server or outside computers, and when I ping our site from an outside computer or the server I get an ip address. If I add that ip address to the hosts file on the client computers they can access our site.
I think DNS on the server is majorly screwed up. Any ideas? Thanks.
