Windows 2016 servers with name resolution issues RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello,

    We have several Windows Servers 2016 with Directory Services and DNS roles installed only, fully patched, IPV6 disabled, Firewall profiles off. If servers are rebooted, ping requests stop working with the following error, no matter what is pinged. We have tried with ping -4 <name_to_resolve> to discard IPV6 issues:

    Error: Ping request could not find host <name_to_resolve>. Please check the name and try again

    However, nslookup resolves the name properly.

    We have run ipconfig /flushdns and keep having the same problem.

    The only fix we have found so far is: restart DNS client on the client machines with the problem and run ipconfig /flushdns afterwards.

    Is there a permanent fix for this issue?

    Thank you.
