  • W2K3 server - Hosts file not resolving

    We have a new server - complete clean installation - which doesn't see it's entries in the hosts file any more.

    Whatever I put in it, the server doesn't resolve it.

    We've tried copy & save a new hosts file, delete original / rename etc - everything , but nothing works...................

    We have checked for spyware etc but none exists, it isn't even on the web yet - only the domain

    Has anyone had this problem before or knows what I can do about it ?

    This is the first we've had like this - same image as the others, same SIF files (yes we changed the server name in sif file) all the other 18 are ok

    It's a W2K3 server with ISA Server 2004

    thanks in advance

      Thanks for your question

      Problem solved.

      DNS Service was running under a network service account that didn't have right on the hosts file. So it wasn't the contents that was wrong. DUHHH
