    Hi Guys,

    Did a quick search here and on google and I could not find anything that matched my problem. Hope that you guys can help!

    Basically what happens is that I can’t connect to our DNS server in the Admin Console.

    The specified DNS server cannot be contacted. Some possible reasons include: not running, network problems, not found.

    The server DOES resolve DNS! It is working … I just can’t connect to it, nor create/edit any lookup zones …. :|

    We only have 1 server. Running Windows 2003 SBS. Running Active Directory, DNS, DHCP, IIS, Exchange, etc …

    I can open EVERYTHING else in the admin console, including the Active Directory Users and Computers, DHCP, etc …

    I checked around here a little, and made some notes that might help???
    If there is anything else that you need to help me here, please let me know!!!

    Thanks!!!
