Hi,

I am running DNS services on a windows 2003 server.

I note that from the server if I type:
nslookup [an address I am using]
it times out.

If I go and clear the DNS cache and rerun
nslookup [an address I am using]
It works.

If I run nslookup [an address I am using] again
It no longer works

the nslookup will work ONCE after each time I clear the cache.

Any ideas?

So ur doing from the client.

Can u you ping a server for me by DNS name.  Then ping again?  Tell me me if u get a response frome the second ping?

I am doing everything on the server via remote desktop

shouldn't a server running dns ONLY use 127.0.0.1 as the dns server in the properties of the local area connection...?  Then the forward lookups should take over.  I shouldn't have to lest any other name servers in the dns of local properties - right?

On the server or a client.  Is this same on all clients?

Do a dcdiag /v and post the errors? I am assuming the DNS server is AD integrated.
