    The network adapter Local Area Connection does not list the loopback IP address as a DNS server, or it is configured as the first entry.

    i am getting the above error, in best practice analyzer. but the secondary dns entry is set as 127.0.0.1 . how do we resolve this?

    What do you have as the primary?
    Can you post an ipconfig /all

    i will include a quote and a link that explains the subject quite exhaustively…

    The loopback address should be configured only as a secondary or tertiary DNS server on a domain controller. If the loopback IP address is the first entry in the list of DNS servers, Active Directory might be unable to find its replication partners.
