We have just setup a new network with Windows 2008 server and about 10 PC's. The problem is many users complaining that the network is very slow.
For example one user today could not play an internet radio station, however when I logged into that workstation and changed the DNS settings to be 8888 suddenly it worked. Also when going to a website, often the initial web page takes a long while to come up or you get a page not found.
So something is going wrong with the DNS setup I assume. But what can I check?
We just done a various simply installation of the network, created the domain using DCPROMO which would have installed DNS and set a forwarder in the DNS of the server. On the network the server and the workstations all have static IP addresses and each workstation has the DNS set to the server.
Any pointers on steps that should be taken to setup DNS when you first install a network?
Thanks in advance?
