Have created a standalone server , added a couple of primary zones, but I can't get this to reslove anything but 'A' records. Nothing like MX records come back. All that is returned are a list of root servers. Even when I type 'nslookup' and hit enter, I get a list of root servers.
This server is not recursive, I'm just trying to resolve what is in the local zones.
Could it have anyhting to do with Global QueryBlock List? I have disabled it.
To get responses on MX records, you need to set the type in NSLOOKUP first. For example... open a command prompt and type NSLOOKUP. Then...> set type=mx
microsoft.com MX preference = 10, mail exchanger = mail.messaging.microsoft.com
mail.messaging.microsoft.com internet address = 126.96.36.199
mail.messaging.microsoft.com internet address = 188.8.131.52

Thanks, that is how I've been trying to get the mx reords from the local zone I created for testing. The problem is, when I enter the domain name it only returns a list of root servers. It also won't resolve NS records in the local zone. This also results in returning the root servers as an answer. It will resolve 'A' records and reverse lookups.
This is not integrated with AD, nor a member of a domain, it is also non-recursive. Currently it has no access to the internet.
Spun up another R2 VM and it behaves the same way.
