DNS for Win2K3 Web Edition?
 
I just got my Dual PIII box with Win2K3 Web Edition on it and I was wondering if there are any good tutorials out there that show you how to set up the DNS on these boxes? Or does anybody have a quick how to that they can post?

Does anyone know an answer for this? Does anyone from Solidrack look at the forums?

Dear telder,

I'm sorry for this late reply. Due to the email problem we had lately we weren't notified of your posting.

First, bind the IP to your server. Do this in Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Local Area Network > Properties > TCP/IP > Properties > Advanced

It seems long, but it's not. Then add the additional IP there.

Okay, now open the DNS MMC snap-in. Create a new primary zone, and have it be for domain.com -- the same domain that your NS records are for.

Then do the following:

Create:
A ns1 x.x.x.x
A ns2 y.y.y.y
A www x.x.x.x
A mail x.x.x.x
MX mail x.x.x.x, 10

Then DELETE the records of type NS... And replace them with:
ns1.domain.com
ns2.domain.com

That should do it. Open a cmd prompt on your server, and:

nslookup
server localhost
www.domain.com

Then it should read off your IP... If it does, everything looks good so far.

Now open a cmd prompt on your local box, and:

nslookup
www.domain.com

If everything comes out okay, then you're all setup. If it doesn't come back, then try this (still within nslookup):

server x.x.x.x
www.domain.com

If that comes back, then the problem lies in your NS records at the registrar, or the registrar's NS records for the domain.

Remember, setting a domain to point to your nameserver is NOT enough, you must also create NS records at the registrar.

Best regards,
