Single server shop.  Go to Control Panels to see what DNS the server is setup to use.

For the first entry, the server uses itself.
FOr the 2nd entry, is has 127.0.0.1  (which I know is just saying 'yourself')

Should that entry be there?  Is it doing any harm?  Should I just remove it?  We use root hints and no forwarders.

Thank you.

You can delete this entry, does no matter. It is the loop-back address of your Network Adapter. Has no Impact to other Name Resolution.
