I am using Windows Server 2008 and set the DNS IP address to From my Ethernet adapter properties (Internet Protocol Version) but when type nslookup is shows which is default DNS IP address. Why it does not show

  • Exactly which version and edition of Server 2008 are you using? Is it configured to be a Domain Controller? Are the DNS server services enabled on to local machine? After changing the DNS in your adapter settings, did you try rebooting and trying NSLookup again? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Sep 11 '15 at 16:57
  • @Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Hi an d thanks the version is Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 64Bit Update 2014 – Mohammad Reza Rezwani Sep 13 '15 at 15:58
  • Are the DNS server services enabled on to local machine ? No, I just try to configure my 2008 server and also Yes I try to configure that as a domain contoler – Mohammad Reza Rezwani Sep 13 '15 at 16:01
  • When you type NSLOOKUP the computer will query the DNS servers it has access to in the order shown in IPCONFIG /ALL. Please use this command and see what it reports under DNS. – Daniel K Sep 15 '15 at 10:14
  • @DanielK It reposts my domain name – Mohammad Reza Rezwani Sep 15 '15 at 14:15
