Got a tricky one here. Customer has a win 2003 box I manage. Last night they attempted to remove their Sophos AV client from the server (apparently it gave some errors).
As of today, the server is unable to resolve DNS. Checked the DNS servers, they are oline and serving up DNS for other clients. Set the DNS server to google Public DNS (22.214.171.124), no go.
We can ping both internally and out over the WAN if ran via IP address. Also, if I ping either my klocal host name (or localhost) from the server, it pings but resolves a very odd IP address:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>ping localhost
Pinging ShoreTel [$ÿ] with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from 127.0.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=128
I also note there were DCOM errors for the netman service, but I did make a change to allow local activation for the NETWORK SERVICE account. Seems to have resolved the DCOM errors
I have the client working on spinning up a 2008R2 VM slice
