Recursive DNS Query RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have looked everywhere and I am finding nothing. I would like to find a way to see the results of the recursive DNS query from my computer. I am on an AD domain so I know the query gets sent to my DC for resolution, then if not in cache on the DC it will use root hints (Since I dont have any forwarders specified) to resolve the name. So what I am looking for is a way to see where my DC is forwarding the query to see if it is a DNS server in the same geographical location as my network. Nslookup will show me the end result of the resolved name but I would like to see the recursive process sort of like a tracert for DNS queries. Does anyone have any ideas? I hope this is making sense.

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    To see the process of the recursive DNS query, you can use cmd command: nslookup set d2 to check the details.

    > NSlookup

    >set d2

    > [Name you want to resolve]

    You could refer to the following official article as your reference:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/administration/windows-commands/nslookup

    Hope this can help you, if you have anything unclear, please let me know.

    Best Regards,

    Ellen
