Have two servers (server1 and server 2) which are both DCs.
For some reason they are not replicating. Believe the issue is with DNS on server1.
This was first noticed when server1 could not access the internet. Can ping internal names and IP addresses. But cannot ping outside names (e.g. www.google.com
) - will not resolve.
Am not onsite but able to remote to server2. Cannot RDP to server1. All network shares cannot be seen on server1. From DNS Manager on server2 cannot open DNS settings for server1.
Had an onsite user check and appears DNS is setup correctly on server1. On server1 can open DNS Manager and can see the settings for server1. It fails the recursive query test.
Tried to force AD replication but encountered DNS errors.
Am reviewing the even viewer for errors.
Have rebooted server1.
Any ideas? Anyone have a troubleshooting doc?
