I have an account with a single domain and a Windows 2003 Small Business Server that is having DNS problems. The error I'm getting is "The DNS server encountered a packet addressed to itself on IP address xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx. The packet will be discarded. This condition usually indicates a configuration error."
I checked the Forwarders list and it is not forwarding to itself, but although I am familiar with DNS services, it seems somewhat of a "dark art" to me. It tells me to check the Master lists of secondary zones, Notify lists of primary zones, Delegations of subzones, etc, but I'm not sure what I am checking for.
This site has a single Domain Controller and it is the DNS server, with a single Domain.... I figure it shouldn't be that complicated. I looked around and did notice that I am showing what appears to be two IP addresses in DNS that are associated with the server. That I think might be my problem. The server only has one network card and only has one IP address assigned to that card. The two addresses are 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.108. The address that is correct is the 192.168.1.2 and I have no idea where the other (.108) came from.
My questions are.... 1. Can I delete the instances of the 192.168.1.108 from the DNS without screwing something up. 2. What would be the best way to go about that. and 3. Is this a likely cause of my problem?
