Setting up DNS on Windows Server 2008 R2
Posted on 2013-12-17
I have several DNS errors when scanning the DNS role in the Roles Wizard in Server 2008 R2.
I get "The network adapter Local Area Connection does not list the loopback IP address as a DNS server, or it is configured as the first entry."
In the network adapter settings, the server (IP address 192.168.0.3) lists the first DNS as 192.168.0.3 and the second as 127.0.0.1.
If I remove 127.0.0.1 and rescan the role, I get: "The network adapter Local Area Connection does not list the loopback IP address as a DNS server, or it is configured as the first entry." Neither assumption is true.
I also get, "Local Area Connection has only the preferred DNS server configured." and recommends, "Click Start, click Network, click Network and Sharing Center, and then click Change adapter settings to configure at least two DNS servers per interface." This I tried to do by adding 127.0.0.1 as the 2nd dns entry. But it gives the first error noted.
Any idea how I resolve this?
