Domain.local DNS issue

Hi.

For some reason my local company domain is not been resolved on the Pcs.

I have got domain.local in the DNS server pointing to 192.168.1.200 and when I do and NSLookup it resolves to 200 but it's not responding to a ping.

This is what the folder redirects using so users redirect are not working at the moment.

I have 2 DNS servers and I have cleared the cashe on both servers and also ipconfig /flushdns on the PC.

Thanks

If nslookup works then your issue is not DNS. It is elsewhere. Bad subnet, routing table, or even firewall issues. Ping is more than just DNS, it actually sends packets and expects a response.

Yes it's not able to resolve though to an IP address to send to though.

It's all on the same subnet.

There is also only one "same as root" in the DNS server.

I have another domain.info on the same forest and that's ok.

Post your nslookup and ping outputs. What you describe is contradictory.

try to ping with fqdn and check if domain.local is added in dns suffix.

Hi.

The issue was with an old abs server that was causing more other issues as well as this. Once I took that from the DNS, demoted it and also removed googles DNS from the dhcp then everything was ok.
