I am running DNS locally on a Win2k3 box, and after a
power failure, the local DNS server does not seem to be
responding. When I drop to DOS and do nslookup, it tries
to find a DNS server at 127.0.0.1, but says DNS request
timed out.

I tried removing DNS and readding through Add/Remove
Windows Components, and still no luck.

I dont see any glaring errors in the event log, except
for the following:

Event Type: Information
Event Source: DNS
Event Category: None
Event ID: 5504
Date: 07/11/2004
Time: 6:21:24 PM
User: N/A
Computer: DELL8100
Description:
The DNS server encountered an invalid domain name in a
packet from 127.0.0.1. The packet will be rejected. The
event data contains the DNS packet.

Hi David

A few questions:

1. Is this a DC?
2. Does the zone exist for the domain that this server is in?
3. Are the zones AD integrated or standard primary?
4. What happens if you point the preferred DNS settings on the NIC to the IP
instead of the localhost address?

Kind regards

Thanks for the reply Mark.

It is not a domain controller. This is just a simple home
setup, so Active Directory is not installed either.
Zones are all primary, and I am pointing nslookup to the
ip (127.0.0.1).

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks again,
Dave

Dave -

I have a similar setup at home. I use my Win2K3 Server
for both routing and DNS lookups. My client PCs know only
about the Server, not about my ISPs.

1) I would recommend avoiding the use of the loopback
address, and use the same IP address the clients will use
to resolve DNS requests. You should have a static IP
address bound to at least one NIC. If you have more than
one NIC, use the internal NIC (attached to your local
network), not the one connected to the ISP.

2) Check connectivity to your Router/ISP. If you can't
ping your gateway, you can't get out and won't resolve DNS.

3) check and update your root servers list.

4) Make sure you don't have "." listed in your DNS tables.

Good luck!

Scott.

Hi David

So what DNS records would this server be attempting to register against the
DNS server? Are you able to explain what zones you have and what DNS suffix
this server may be configured with? Feel free to email me directly if you'd
like to take the details offline.

Kind regards
