DNS "Secondary DNS server" just fails to kick in....
Posted on 2015-01-05
Our users suddenly were not able to see network drives through mapping, which caused a whole network downtime due to the Primary DNS server was down. But we do have a Secondary DNS server in place in each client -- as listed by ipconfig. How come the Secondary DNS server didn't kick in to do its job of resolving names while the Primary DNS server is down?
Did I miss anything? What should I set up to prevent this issue?
