I'm having a problem with my server 2008 R2 terminal server. It looks like an IP / DNS underlying issue. SERVER1 is my SBS Server DC and is running DNS, DHCP, etc. SERVER2 is my term server and hosts about 30 users. I noticed the issue when the latest version of my cloud backup software couldn't phone home and talk to it's cloud servers.
I try running Remote Desktop Manager and get the following:
Exception Message: A non-recoverable error occurred during a database lookup
(String hostname, Boolean includeIPv6)
I tried the following powershell command:
and get this:
Exception calling "GetHostAddresses" with "1" argument(s): "A non-recoverable error occurred during a
At line:1 char:35
ddresses <<<< ("www.msn.com
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) , MethodInvocationException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : DotNetMethodException
gives these results:
Default Server: UnKnown
*** UnKnown can't find www.msn.com
: No response from server
*** UnKnown can't find paumac02: No response from server
So it seems there is an underlying dns issue. However all users on this termserver can browse internet and resolve names via browser...
Any troubleshooting steps are appreciated.
