Hi All ..... brain freeze at present with a new Server 2012 with DNS and AD Domain Services installed.

Any NSLOOKUP or name resolution for external hosts fails (TIme Out) from command prompt. Disabling Public Windows Firewall fixes issue, but not sure on what I need to allow on this firewall so I can switch it back on?

do you mean the built-in firewall services on the Windows 2012 server?

you may first try resetting the firewall with default rules, as shown below.

By doing this, I may lose other settings on Firewall - i'd prefer to identify what may need to be added as an exception :)

Any thoughts?

Firewall disabled and still seeing issues :(

When in DNS Forwarders, I notice that timeouts are occurring on ISPs and Google's Public DNS Servers?

You need to say the domain name and DNS server if you want people to help you.
After you got your help you can ask moderators to clean private info form your posts.

Sadly nobody can guess what problems you are experiencing from graphic screenshots not even shoving a single error message.

Also came across http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/14131.windows-2012-server-nic-teaming-for-hyperv.aspx which confirms my testing results and the mode I now HAVE TO use.

Solution had nothing to do with any response and totally unrelated to question.
