I think I have a DNS issue

Good morning,

I have a virtual server hosting Report services.  I had to reboot the server now I can't access the report via IE on the LAN.  I can access the site on the local server and iI can access the site via the IP address.  I have flushed my DNS and checked the dns entry on the server.
 
What are the possible cause?

Have you checked your host file? Also have you checked that the windows firewall wasn't disabled prior to the reboot and the reboot automatically started it again?

Also, run nslookup servername and see if that's responding with the correct IP

Lastly can you ping it?

I have checked the firewall. it is disabled. This is affecting myself and all other users. I just tried Firefox and it works there.  I have cleared Browser cache and history and still the same issue.

It is possible your web service or site is down?

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

That's weird, that internet explorer doesn't work but firefox does...

Sounds like a setting within IE that's causing it, do you have any group policies for the configuration of IE? It could be something in your security settings or privacy settings in there.

If you can, drop your computer in an OU where there aren't group policies and see if when you change the settings of IE it fixes it. It's not your DNS if firefox is working and it's certainly not the server at fault here.

Try adding the Site URL to the Local Intranet Zone in IE Security. This should correct the issue.

I was able to get this resolved. I had to recreate a pointer record for it

Did NSLookup not give you the correct IP address then?

Also if firefox was working that would indicate that the record for it was correct.
