I am currently running a local DNS server which is configured with one domain controller, having a bunch of domains and those domains have all wildcard entries for any subdomains. I also have WINS enabled for easy file exploring.
My problem that I am having at the moment is that these domains and subdomains do not seem to function (cannot ping them) after a while; when I do ipconfig -release & -renew on the client computer however, I am able to connect to the (sub)domains again for a period of time.
Could this be because I have set-up Google DNS as a secondary DNS server for everything apart from my local domains?
I am running DNS server on a Windows Server 2008 R2 server and IIS on a seperate Windows Server 2003 server which has the actual websites associated with the domains.
I'd also like to note that I seem to be also having the same issue as https://serverfault.com/questions/508571/dns-cache-in-windows-client-not-updating, maybe this is related to this issue?
