  • NSLookup throws a Non Existant domain msg

    Hello Guys,

    We have a 4 Domain Controllers (Win 2003 Server) with DNS Service installed.
    Today one of our file servers (also server 2003) suddenly became in-accessible to the users, we tried piinging the server, it worked. Now when we tried to run a NSLOOKUP command against the file server it threw the following msg.

    *** Can't find server name for address 200.101.131.42: Non-existent domain
    *** Can't find server name for address 200.101.147.33: Non-existent domain
    *** Can't find server name for address 200.124.2.15: Non-existent domain
    *** Can't find server name for address 201.126.146.31: Non-existent domain
    *** Can't find server name for address 201.146.126.31: Non-existent domain
    *** Default servers are not available
    Server: UnKnown
    Address: 200.101.131.42
    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: asibkf2244.xyz.abc.com

    Ideally it shld have thrown me the name server along with the servers IP, but thats not meant to be.
    Can anyone let me know wht the problem could be.

    Thanks once again.

    Regards.

    looks like all your dns servers are having an issue...

    or your dns configuration is messed up somewhere. Have you changed the IP addresses, or are they the real ones ?

      I accept I've changed the Ip's.. just given random ones to keep it anonymous...

      What could be the problem that you can think of.. do let me know your opinion. It was working fine till few hours ago.. I mean all of a sudden the users were unable to access the file server and when I queried the DNS i got the response that i fwded.

      I did reboot the file server and all the users are able to access the server and the DFS shares..

      Please let me know your opinion on this.

      Regards.

        Is that the IP address of your internal DNS server???

        Any changes made to your DNS structure recently??

          Yes, it is the IP of my internal DNS server and No there weren't any changes made to the DNS.

            Do you have a reverse lookup zone set up?
