SBS2011 Client machines randomly unable to get to external websites
Posted on 2012-08-24
I have done two Clean Installs on two new servers recently, one was my own and one is a customer, both are exhibiting the same problem.
At random times during the day some uses will go onto websites they have been on many times before and just get the usual webpage cannot be displayed.
Because this happens on my own network I have tried maually putting my routers IP address in the CLIENT machines DNS (ipv4) and this "Seems" to cure it.
My question is should I put my router IP address somewhere in the servers settings other than the wizzard used to setup the server in the first place? As a second DNS maybe?
Both servers seem in good health, they backup, they retrieve updates and everyone logs on without problem,
Both routers in both companies are Draytek 2820n and 2830n and I have used drayteks for years
