Strange DNS happens
Posted on 2016-11-04
Good Morning Folks,
We moved our on prem website to an offsite hosted environment. Made what I believe to be the proper changes to DNS internally (external was handled by the contractor and looks correct). changed the www DNS entry to reflex the new server address.
What is happening now is this. When i leave the DHCP settings alone I can access all internal resources and access our servers in Vcloud air, but when you type in the website address it goes to an IIS start page (internally only) externally its fine. I have added a few different external DNS servers to the mix. When I move an external higher in the list of available servers the website works internally but breaks RDP to the vcloud servers (i can RDP using the IP address but not the name).
I have waited 24 hours just to make sure everything had time to refresh. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas.
