I have installed active directory , dns and dcpromo etc etc on windows 2008 r2
my ip settings for this server are:
static ip: 192.168.0.2
subnet mask :255.255.255.0
default gateway: 192.168.0.1
prefered DNS: 192.168.0.2
My problem is with the nslookup commands - see below, comments included.
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
DNS request timed out.
timeout was 2 seconds.
Default Server: UnKnown
(I should get the server or ip address thrown back to me of THIS server as it is the DNS Server)
*** UnKnown can't find 192.168.0.2: Non-existent domain
(This should throw back the FQDN of the DNS server - i.e. THIS server)
(here I am doing an nslookup on the domain - why does it say server unknown?)
(This throws back the correct data I believe)
