DNS Server Log Error (Windows Server 2016 Essentials AD)

I'm still having issues getting my new server fully online. I created my new domain on Windows Server Essentials 2016, and migrated all the computers from the Windows Server 2012 domain onto the new domain.

Everything seems to be working except for DNS/DHCP. I have to set a static IP as well as define an outside DNS server such as 1.1.1.1 in order to get internet on my devices.

If I power back on the old server which no devices are connected to, I can connect to the internet without settings a static IP or DNS server.

I'm thinking there's a problem with the DNS on my new server, though I'm not sure what it is. The server is brand new, on a new domain as the primary DC. I migrated the DHCP settings from the old server and adjusted them to remove references to the old server, and set references to the new server.

When I run dcdiag /fix I get the following output:

How can I get DNS and DHCP working on my new server so I can finally retire the old one without having to set a static ip?

Thank you!

This is the DNS on Windows Server 2016 Essentials. Shouldn't there be two entries here? One with the domain appended to the server name?

My 2012 server is setup with two entries as outlined above. IS this why my DNS isn't working?

Hi,

I hope you have set static ip in the new server and preferred dns as itself?

Now set the DNS forwarders which pointing your isp's ip.

In DHCP scope option, make sure the entries are correct.

It looks like all I had to do was set the DNS forwarders as @systech suggested. Once I did that I powered off my old server handling DNS and DHCP, and rebooted my new server.

Once everything powered back on I disabled the static ip on my devices and they all worked.
