WIndows 7 Pro using external DNS server records... PERIOD
Posted on 2015-02-18
I purchased my boss a replacement workstation from micro center and it came piled on with bloatware. I instantly uninstalled the AV that came with and noticed afterward, that all the DNS requests were being answered as if outside our firewall (public addresses). I have a local fwd lookup zone (domain.com) with an 'A' host record "www" which points to our internal web server address set up on my local DNS server and it works fine for every computer in the company, except this one. If I do an nslookup on the workstation and set the server to 192.168.1.9 (our local DC/DNS), the query www.domain.com returns the public address and not the internal. I've flushed cache, uninstalled and reinstalled nic software/driver...
Anyone have any clues? Something with security or trusts via DNS?
Anyway, something is horribly wrong and it's driving me insane.
I've searched through google and found nothing promising, so now I'm desperate...
WOrkstation OS is x64 win 7
DC OS is 2008 (not R2)
