Is the DNS server an old DC or part of the Active directory?

I'm guessing you're not pointed to your new DNS server.  Is the machine you're testing from a DCHP client?  If so, you may need to update DHCP to hand out the new DNS server's address.  If not, you may need to update the IP properties on your machine to point to the new DNS server.

Paul MacDonaldDirector, Information SystemsCommented:
Unless you need a special forwarder, you can leave it open.  Otherwise you can try Google DNS at 8.8.8.8 and/or 8.8.4.4

i solve that, but what is the risk of a failing dns, i  dont want to mess up my file server permisions, are thinks apart?

Paul MacDonaldDirector, Information SystemsCommented:
The risk depends on what you're using it for.    Usually it means you won't be able to access a machine or service.

DNS is heavily integrated with Active Directory - if your DNS goes down, you will have problems with workstations/users accessing the server.

A forwarder is useful if you have multiple servers or multiple sites.
Sometimes you can set the DNS forwarder to be your ISPs DNS as this will often help resolve external names quicker - but it typically doesnt make a lot of difference.
