My active directory is dropping its connection continuously to DNS, although it works just fine given that I keep my active directory open. However, if the active directory is closed, and I stop using it for a couple of hours, it doesn’t load up due to a Domain Name System (DNS) problem. In addition, when I use the NSLOOKUP command, It says that it can’t find the server name.
It clears up when I restart. Previously DNS and Active directory both worked just fine – the problems started only in the last couple of days.
I will highly appreciate if anyone can provide me any suggestions on that matter.
DNS and Active Directory Problem
Try to browse using IP address, type 74.125,71.99 in the address bar. If it'll display the web page then that means there is something wrong with the DNS software installed.
You may clear all browsing history, clear cache file, cookies and forms data. This empty the browsing history in your browser that sometimes causes the DNS not to work properly.
Go to Start, Start Search then type cmd and press enter.
Type this command in the blinking cursor, ipconfig/flushdns. This flushes all DNS errors for possible corrupted software.
Try browsing but if this doesn't work, do this command. Go to Start, Start Search and type services.msc then enter.
Look for DNS client, stop and Start the service again. This should fix the problem.
