having problem s with connections with exchange 2013 , I think the problem  resolves around the NSLOOKUP  when run returns the result Default SERVER : unknown
address  ::1

despite that I have set the NSLOOKUP SERVER and DOMAIN command to the correct SERVER and DOMAIN names several time but something is been changed

It initially sounds like you have IPv6 bound to a NIC before IPv4.

Have you verified the binding order of the protocols and the NIC order on these servers?  Microsoft default are not the best setup.

 1. Go to:  Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Network and Sharing Center
 2. Click "Change adapter settings"
 3. hit the "ALT" key once, the file menu will appear
 4. click "Advanced" then select "Advanced Settings"
 5. On the tab "Adapters and Bindings > Connections area :: make sure you NIC(s) are in the order in which you want them used... Make sure the object "[Remote Access Connections]" is on the bottom.
 6. In the Bindings for "YourNicName" section, make sure TCP/IPv4 is above v6
 7. On the tab "Provider Order" > Network Providers area :: make sure "Microsoft Windows Network" is first.

Click thru all OKs.  Then give it a test.

Address ::1 is the IPv6 what of saying 127.0.0.1 which is localhost.

I have made the changes that you suggest but on running the NSLOOKUP I still get the same message
Default Server: unknown
Address: ::1

Could post an IPCONFIG /ALL from the server with the issue?

This issue is that the first DNS server is the IPv6 localhost (::1).  I would remove it.
