  • NS lookup issues

    Hi,
    our domain name is unigrain.co.za, for mail, but our local domain is unigrain.local.

    I do an NSlookup, on our SBS2003 server, plus a set type=mx, or wether i go set q=mx

    And it shows

    server.unigrain.local can't find unigrain.co.za. query refused.

    And it's supposed to give me something like this below.


    And the example microsoft give is the following

    C:\> nslookup
    Default Server: ns1.domain.com
    Address: 10.0.0.1

    > set q=mx
    > mailhost
    Server: ns1.domain.com
    Address: 10.0.0.1

    mailhost.domain.com MX preference = 0, mail exchanger =
    mailhost.domain.com
    mailhost.domain.com internet address = 10.0.0.5
    >



    Please help. What could be wrong, and how can i fix it ?
    Thanks in advance

    Re: NS lookup issues

    does unigrain.co.za resolve?
    does the localdomain resolve?
    do you have a DNS forwarder set up?
    is the provider where your domain is parked accessible and working?
    is there an mx record at all?

    South African internet is rather shaky, maybe it is an intermittent error?

      did you set the forwarder in your DNS server to query the ISP dns?

      See here
      Scroll down to "How to Configure Forwarders"

        As an alternative to Lior's suggestion, you could UTFW!

        Run the Internet Connection Wizard and the first (Networking) section, tell it your ISP's DNS IP addresses ( if you don't know them, ask your ISP). Also make sure all network cards on the server (and workstations) point their DNS setting to the SBS (internal) NIC.
        NOW run nslookup and report the results along with a full "ipconfig /all" of the server.
        TIA

          Yes indeed, I missed that this is SBS.
