How can I test if my forward lookups are working on my windows server 2003 machine and where do you specify the forward dns server addresses?
I suspect it is not working as I set up a workstation with a static ip and typed in that server's address as the sole dns server. DNS lookups all failed, for example if I typed "ping serverfault.com" it would not resolve. As soon as I put in a secondary dns server (an outside machine) it resolves fine.
I am guessing the server is not properly set up with forward lookup servers (hopefully that is the correct term).
So, where do those normally get entered in the Microsoft DNS management console and how would I test that it is / is not working?
