Simple query passes while recursive fails. seems that DNS CAN be resolved, just refuses to show in DNS properties monitoring tab
tried with and without forwarders. nslookup from server works when using local server DNS and google's public DNS.
when using local server DNS nslookup to www.microsoft.com
regularly fails on first attempt
when recursion is disabled monitoring on the server is responding to both simple and recursive.
