FAIL FAIL -- Follow Up!

Discussion in 'DNS Server' started by Nicholas Corduan, Feb 25, 2004.

  1. In an earlier post, I asked about the following situation:

    "One of our external DNS servers fails both the simple and recursive
    query tests when we run the DNS monitoring tests, yet there are no
    apparent problems in the event log and if we run NSLookups on the
    server from a remote machine there are no immediate problems."

    I asked for some more information about the server itself. It's a
    Windows 2000 server with SP3 installed.

    Also, I thought I should mention that we've noticed other servers
    which have this server in their forwarding lists keep getting errors
    back suggesting that the problematic server does not have recursion
    enabled -- but it does.

    It was that problem which led me to run the monitoring test which
    returned the double FAIL.

    Thanks for any further assistance you can give!

    Which recursion setting ? The one in the properties of the
    server node in the DNS mgmt UI, on the Advanced tab IIRC ?

  3. Both recursion settings are enabled (or not disabled, as the case may
