I have the strangest problem in my admin life so far that is haunting me for almost more than a year and I can't seem to find a solution for it.
While we work on our network we almost always use our AD DNS server for internal name resolution for accessing different nodes through out the network. But when I work the DNS Lookups that come from my PC are failing several times during the day. They fail constantly unless I restart the DNS Client. Then everything works fine for a while but after 2-3 hours the problem starts over
For example we have an internal web service on a server called
srv1. If I try via browser
http://srv1, I get DNS lookup failed error. The same goes for any other internal DNS name.
Then if I try
ping srv1, I get
Ping request could not find host srv1. Please check the name and try again.
Ok I say to myself, let's try accessing with FQDN:
Ping request could not find host srv1.netbit.local. Please check the name and try again.
I restarted the DNS client then the problem is gone for a while. It is like something is interrupting the DNS client service but I am unable to locate it.
Only my workstation has this problem in the entire company.
Has anyone ever encountered a similar problem?
