BPA on the server is always reporting that "DNS servers on (network adaptor) should include the loopback address but not as the first entry".

The DNS Server addresses ARE listed as they should be with the loopback address listed at the bottom as the LAST entry. What am I doing wrong?

You need to configure loop back DNS on the NIC.  (make sure NOT to add this as first entry)

1.
On the DNS server, click Start, click Run, type control netconnections, and then click OK.

2.
Right-click the network adapter you wish to configure, and then click Properties.

3.
Click Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4), click Properties, and then click Advanced.

4.
On the DNS tab, under DNS server addresses, in order of use, click Add, type the IP address of the DNS server you wish to add, and then click Add. To add the IPv4 loopback address, type 127.0.0.1.

5.
To change the order of DNS servers, click the UP arrow or the DOWN arrow on the right side of the list. When you have completed configuring the list of DNS servers, click OK twice, and then click Close.

Hi Infamus - Thanks for your advice but what you suggest is exactly what I have already done. See attached image.

BPA still reports that the loopback address should not be the first entry and as you can see, it is evidently not the first entry.
