I have a domain controller MS Windows server 2003 R2, is it also my DNS,
lately everyone on the network is having problem accessing websites.
I changed the Prefered DNS server address on my workstation from the DC1 server address to 8.8.8.8, the websites starting loading up very quickly.
I have a local internal DNS issue on the server.
The firewall, switches & ISP provider have all tested their equipement w/ no issues.
If someone can help me fix the DNS issue on my DC1.
We are a small network of 40 users.
Thank you in advance

Did you try restarting the DNS service. Also try reload the DNS zone for updates. Check for eventviewer logs

DNS eventlogs is the recommended starting point for your troubleshooting.
Check if name resolution on your dns server works fine so that it can answer client queries. You also might want to check some advance settings like root hints, SOA etc. but it depends on the error logs. If it is ad integrated  then you can also check for AD replication and AD logs. In the network settings of that DC, one of the pri/sec DNS should be it's own IP address.
