I've inherited a DNS server setup and I'm trying to configure our local intranet properly. Forgive me if this is simple, but I'm missing something in our configuration.
We're hosting trying to host 2 separate intranet sites on 1 IIS 6 Server (Server 2003).
Site 1: http:// servername (ipaddress:80) Site 2: http:// production (ipaddress:8080) - host header value of 'production' in IIS and DNS A Record set up points to the correct server.
Everything works properly for a while, but unexpectedly we lose the ability to type in 'production' - and get a DNS resolver error.
If we cmd > ipconfig /flushDNS, everything works perfect back to normal.
Why would each of the clients be losing the reference and then not allowing us to connect for a period of time? (nslookup always finds the correct server, then it works fine again)
Is there any way to create a "static" reference without changing the HOSTS file on each PC (not practical).
Thanks in advance for your help!
