Rendom Server 2016

Previous IT set up server 2016 with .com that they didn't own.  Happens to be parent company of franchise, so causing all kinds of DNS issues.

Wanted to rename domain - so ran the random steps.... everything works until I get to random /execute and I get an error message that script failed to execute :3.  

I have searched and cannot find a solution...

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just a question... Why not address the DNS issues?

The previous IT did not create on a subdomain or it would be easy.  Unfortunately this is a real estate company and all listings are auto generated subdomains of the one chosen.  So where we may have used something.XXX.Com the previous IT used XXX.Com as the local domain.  Now when the listings generate adb45a654.XXX.Com they cannot be reached from inside the network.  

Unless I am missing something here on DNS I have not figured out how to address the issue without changing the DNS.  It has also caused issues with Windows 10 computers attempting to authenticate.

If you point computer to internal DNS server and add external DNS servers as forwarders you should not have this issue

Same result - When trying to go to a website on the real domain.....

DNS forwarders did not fix.

This site can’t be reached
20ozarkhwy.XXX.com’s server IP address could not be found.

Setting up the name section of a server is the foundation of everything it does. I would back up your server and reinstall Server 2016. I think that is the best approach here.
