I have a 2008 Windows Server. Its a DNS server. Im trying to see where I can find where this server is resolving to? I remember in 2003 I could set it to resolve to AT&T or some parent server but not sure where in 2008.

you mean the forwarding Setting? Just rightclick on your Server in DNS Management and select forwarders. click Edit and add your Providers (or AT&T) Server there.

So I just add it in the list for all the forwarders? There is not a location to input a main forwarder. In 2003 there was a forwarder setting for "All other DNS domains" that we could put in a provider.
