We have a network with a Primary Domain Controller running Windows Server 2016 and acting as the primary DNS, a desktop running Windows 10, and a laptop running Windows 10.
This morning, the laptop was acting squirelly and I rebooted. Since I rebooted, I'm getting "DNS Server isn't responding" on any internet access. Both the Server and the Desktop are working fine. I've compared the DNS server configuration as shown by ipconfig on the laptop and the desktop, and they are identical. I've tried doing nslookup cmds on the laptop directed to the external DNS servers, and the respond "DNS request timed out."
Event log has quite a number of DNS Client errors, mostly basically saying it can't reach the DNS server.
I'm baffled. I had a similar problem a few months ago, and it was resolved by rebooting all the machines, but that has not helped this time.
