Netdiag says "Query for DC DNS entry domain.local. on DNS server 0.0.0.0 failed." Why is the server 0.0.0.0? Like with my other question, all I find on the internet are netdiag logs, no explanation. The DNS server is actually set to 127.0.0.1 and Hosts says:

127.0.0.1 localhost

Update: domain.local is just a placeholder for the actual domain name.

local. is usually used for Zeroconf, but I don't know if 2008 is smart enough to realize this and do a mDNS lookup instead. –  Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Nov 23 '10 at 18:23
    
Sorry. domain.local is just a placeholder for the actual domain name. –  boston Nov 23 '10 at 18:59

It looks like the DNS server to query is not setup correctly on the machine. What is the output of ipconfig ?

DNS servers are set to ::1 and 127.0.0.1 –  boston Nov 24 '10 at 12:19
    
If you run "nslookup" on this machine, do names resolve correctly? –  adamo Nov 24 '10 at 13:12
    
Yes they do resolve correctly. –  boston Dec 1 '10 at 11:11
