    It is always advisable to have 2 nameservers in each domain so that if the primary nameserver went down, you still have the secondary dns. All your DNS records (A records or MX records) are created and maintained from your registered server. Can you tell here what is the domain name? Maybe I could help.

Yes, all Windows Servers have the option to install DNS.

Set up a second Windows server and configure it to be a secondary server for your DNS domains on you current server.

Add the second DNS server's IP address to the secondary DNS field to your DHCP scope options and to all computers with static IP configuration so they will use it when your primary DNS is unavailable.

Don't underestimate Window's built-in Help and Support. It will help you install DNS and configure it.

Good luck.

What is the primary DNS and secondary DNS?


There are two basic types of DNS - primary DNS and secondary DNS, which are generally applied to each newly registered domain. They are name server computers where the record of your domain name is stored. The information on both servers is identical. The two DNS values are usually configured by your ISPor hosting provider and given to you as a very important part of your domain registration order details.

In general, domain names can work with only one name server - the primary DNS. However, practice has shown that a domain name needs to have at least two name servers assigned in order to be available at any time. In case there is a problem with the primary name server, the secondary name server will be able to answer the online request for a particular domain. This back-up requirement has turned into an accepted Internet standard that prevents domain names from going offline.

DNS


DNS is the primary name resolution service for Windows Server 2003. Active Directory depends on DNS for domain controller location, and DNS influences Active Directory domain naming. Thus, to fully understand Active Directory, it helps to understand how DNS acts as an integral component in the design of Active Directory.

DNS provides Active Directory with both a name resolution service for domain controller location and a hierarchical design that Active Directory leverages to provide a naming convention that can reflect organizational structure.
Typically, a DNS domain namespace deployed to accommodate the Active Directory mirrors the Active Directory domain namespace. In cases where there is an existing DNS namespace prior to Active Directory deployment, the DNS namespace is typically partitioned for Active Directory, and a DNS subdomain and delegation for the Active Directory forest root is created. Additional DNS domain names are then added for each Active Directory child domain.
DNS data is used to support the location of Active Directory domain controllers also. During or after the creation of the DNS zones used to support Active Directory domains, the zones are populated with DNS resource records that enable network hosts and services to locate Active Directory domain controllers.

Why can't I access my ISP's resources, such as their mail and news servers on my RO318?


If the servers have simple names like 'mail' or 'news', the problem may be that the ISP's domain suffix is not being added to these names before DNS lookup. Add your ISP's domain suffix as Domain Name in the RO318's System menu. In addition, the ISP may be looking for a particular host name for your account, in which case you should enter the host name as the System Name in the RO318's System menu. Example: Consider the following account with the ISP "earthlink.net". 1. Host Name: C-223344-A 2. Domain Name: www.earthlink.net Mail Server mail Although the ISP lists the name of their mail server as 'mail', the fully expanded name is actually: mail.earthlink.net If the ISP automatically provides the domain suffix to your router, the router will append the domain suffix to DNS requests. If not, you can try one of these methods: 1. In each application (such as mail client or news reader), list the fully expanded server name, 2. Manually configure DNS parameters in the network settings of each of your PCs, and enter the domain suffix manually.
