  • Hi Gents,

    I am writing here after completed all my troubleshooting and research. Nothing is left for troubleshooting and I desperately need help here.


    One Virtual Active Directory Domain Controller Hosted at Service Provider.

    End-Points are Windows 10 Pro. Get authenticated with AD from IPsec tunnel using internet.

    All End-Points are connected to same wireless SSID. 

    Issue Description:

    All of sudden, DNS name resolution is failing for random endpoints and after a while start working automatically or issue fixed momentary if we apply the following: Restarting endpoint, Reconnecting to wireless network, ipconfig /renew ipconfig /release but than again issue re-appear after a while.

    During the issue, effected endpoints are not able to access resources by DNS name. However, they can access resources by IP.

    During the issue, we checked other endpoints and name resolution is working fine.

    When DNS issue occurred, Netlogon log always generating same logs.
