comment IIS 7.5 saving configuration settings to web.config with IIS Manager
Web.config is there to solve the exact problem of manually configuring stuff when you deploy a site - the config lives with the site itself. If you're having problems when you're deploying with the web.config then that's the problem you should be solving, as it's very likely going to point you to the root cause of the other problems too.

Are you running both sites under IIS and or perhaps one under IIS Express (i.e. launched from Visual Studio)?

Is the VM part of a Virtual Network? If not then the DHCP lease given should allow DNS resolution by default. Have you tried doing the same lookup that your code is doing from a command prompt?

comment DNS on Windows Server 2012 R2
Is your client PC on a different subnet from your DC? Or perhaps you have NetBIOS disabled? Try using the FQDN of the domain when joining the machine to the domain. I.e. wolf01.mydomain.local or whatever you're using.

@Sergey you need to be clear what you mean by 'truncating the logs after full backup'. If you mean BACKUP LOG WITH TRUNCATE ONLY then this WILL break the log chain, even if done immediately after a full backup. Just for the sake of people reading this thread, we need to make a clear distinction between 'backing up the log' (which also truncates) and 'truncating the log using TRUNCATE_ONLY' which breaks the log chain.

I think we're getting our wires crossed here. When you refer to "truncating the log" what exactly do you mean? To me, manually truncating a t-log means issuing a BACKUP command WITH TRUNCATE_ONLY which will lose your log chain regardless of when you do it - even immediately after a full backup of the database itself.

The log is truncated when you back up the transaction log

If they do not truncate the log after a full backup they are - "not smart" - (manually) truncating the transaction log after a full backup will break the log chain and render the rest of the t-log backups useless! I think perhaps the way you've phrased it is a little ambiguous. t-logs should never be manually truncated - the act of taking a backup will truncate them.

I still have issues with your answer here - you say that there is no reason to keep the full log after a full backup, but if they intend to use log backup to allow point-in-time restores then the transaction log should never be manually truncated.
