Exchange Server gives out DNS address of 192.168.0.10 to workstations...
Posted on 2011-05-13
We have recently upgraded our server to Exchange Server 2008 R2 and have it set as a domain name server, we have used the wizards to set the DNS up and everything seemed OK apart from the workstations Internet, the server has a static IP of 192.168.0.10 and is giving out a dynamic DNS of 192.168.0.10 and 18.104.22.168 to the workstations, this allows the workstations to connect to the server for everything but does not allow the workstations to surf internet sites.
We manually changed the DNS server on the Exchange Server to Primary 192.168.0.10 and Secondary (to the Internet connection DNS) and then did the same on each workstation, this seemed to resolve the issue but I wanted to check that this is correct?
We have been getting loads of EventID 5501 errors so not sure if this is related to this issue?
Any advise would be great...thanks!
