you could also confirm your settings (so you are not chasing your
tail)...

I assume you've configured DNS on the DC to resolve on its own IP. If
so, how are you testing name resolution?

Drop to a command prompt and type 'nslookup'. If it gives some bs about
'can't find server name' then just note this and then type the FQDN of
your DC. If that returns an IP, then you just need to configure your
AD-integrated reverse lookup zone. If it fails, make sure you have an
AD-integrated forward lookup zone created and that an A record for your
DC exists. If that's already done.... I guess check to make sure the DNS
service is started or try recreating the zones.

Well, I could have all workstations pointing to the DC, but if the DC
can't
see itself as a DNS server, wouldn't the workstations not be able to see
it
either?  The reverse lookup zone is standard primary and not Active
directory-integrated.  I will check on the forwarders...

Also, make sure that you have forwarders on that name server to your
ISP's name servers.=3D20

Make sure that all of your workstations/servers are pointing to the DC =
=3D
=3D3D
or the server hosting the DNS zone for your AD domain.  If not, then =
=3D3D
this is where you problem lies.  Also, make sure that ALL of your zones
=3D3D
are AD integrated.

I thought I could get some answers here...I have upgraded an NT4.0 =3D3D
domain to W2K with AD, and all went smoothly.  But, DNS is not working =
=3D
=3D3D
the way it should (nslookup responds with a "can't find server name for
=3D3D
address..." message).  All pc's can see each other and the internet, =
=3D3D
forward lookup zone is set to AD-integrated, dynamic updates, and =3D3D
reverse lookup zone is set to standard-primary, dynamic updates.  The =
=3D
=3D3D
domain name is 'domain.com', the
NetBIOS name is 'domain', and the pc name is 'newserver.domain'   I feel
=3D3D
it
will cause problems, as we are set to install Exchange 2000 soon, and if
=3D3D
it can't find a DNS server, it will error.  Any advice or resources?  We
=3D3D
received no errors during setup, which makes it even more puzzling... =

Thanks in advance,=3D3D20
