  • hi,

    “DNS query failed” is the most common error I come across while troubleshooting mail flow for my clients. In this post I will publish all the troubleshooting I have perform to resolve the error.

    1. If Exchange server is on windows 2008, please make sure IPv6 is disabled in the network adapter settings.
    2. Make sure the deployed  firewall is configured to allow DNS port 53 (UDP). If possible configure the same rule in windows internal firewall.
    3. DNS server is one of the major component required to run exchange server in your organisation. Therefore, please make sure forwarders and zones are configured properly.
    4. Check if HUB server can connect to DNS server.

    hope can help you

    thanks,

  • Hello

    This issue seems to be DNS related, Please check DNS can you resolve DNS query.

    This can be configured on the SMTP sendconnector and the Network tab, check the checkbox "Use External DNS lookup settings on the transport server". Then configure the HUB transport server object and the "External DNS lookup" tab and the "Use these DNS servers"
    Using your ISP DNS servers as smart host.
