Check your hosts file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts)

Most likely the 2 entries are commented/hashed out like so:

#127.0.0.1 localhost
#::1 localhost

Remove those hashes and save the hosts file, try again ...

Hmmm ... Did you restart the dnsclient service and DNS server service after?
If the entries were indeed hashed out and you changed it of course?

Probably did, just checking.

Interesting, did you run something like "dcdiag /d" to check the environment?

Where there any errors?

Running the dcdiag /d would probably have given the hint for solving the AD site issue ... Oh well ...

I'm not in it for the points, so I choose number 2 - Delete/no refund

I would at least expect a more detailed explanation about what the solution was and how the OP came to it... We are all here to learn.

I had to recreate the DNS zones as the server holding the FSMO roles zones were pretty much empty. Apologies for not being more precise with my explanation of my solution.
