i have 3 computers all windows 7 Pro and 1 2011 Windows Home Server. The WHS is providing DNS and DHCP. I can browse files on the server but when I try to copy them it takes a long time. I belive its a DNS issue. What is the correct way to setup DNS on WHS in a workgroup environment? I just created a Zone named domain.local but when I do a ipconfig/registerdns on a computer it don't see it in the zone. Any suggestions.

Hi,

DNS does not play the role to copy the data.

how you concluded that its DNS ?
what is the NIC and Switch port speed ?
how you are checking the copying time ?

Please check, the connectivity also.

I disabled dhcp on the WHS2011 server and enabled it on the router and let the router handle dns and it works fine. I also noticed when the server was doing dhcp and dns ping times to external sites were really slow like 1000+ ms For example they have a hosted exchange and when they opened outlook it would hang on the spash screen for 30 sec. Now that the router is doing dhcp and dns outlook opens immediately. As for NIC and switches there is a TPLink Wireless Router, 8 port gigabit netgear switch, and 5 port zonet 10/100 switch that one pc, PBX and camera DVRare connected to. The rest of the computers are connected to the gigabit switch. The server has a gigabit nic.  As for copying time to copy a 60k file took like 20 min.
