DNS Forward Lookup Zone

Posted on 2011-10-10

2008 server R2 which is running AD, DNS, DHCP.  I am not sure why this is but instead of this server handling the DNS forward lookup zone, it is registering on a DNS forwarding server on another subnet.  I am not sure what I am am missing in my setup but I would like the .1 setup to handle its own DNS forward lookup zone.

    Like wantabe2 said, just point the DNS server to itself. Is there another DNS server/DC in the domain. If so, you can point one to the other DC and vice-versa.
