I have been having a strange problem with our locally hosted DNS (bind on ubuntu server). We have a DNS server that hosts several locally defined domains (for example, myserver.localnetwork). Normally if I point a browser to myserver.localnetwork, it works without problem. However, about once every 30 minutes or so it will return a "Problem Loading Page". Firefox will state "could not find the server at myserver.localnetwork". If I wait about 5 minutes, it will start working again. This seems to happen across multiple OSs and on all the network computers. It seems to happen at some sort of regular interval which has made me suspect some DNS server problem (or possibly DHCP), but I really have no idea what would cause this sort of problem.
- Although the problem happens on multiple computer, it does not happen at the same time. While one computer can't find the server, other computers will be able to find it just fine
- Even while Win 7 Can't find the server, nslookup myserver.localnetwork returns the correct ip and correct DNS server
- On Ubuntu, if I hold down F5 to refresh the page, it will usally fix the problem. However, this doesn't work on windows 7.
