microsoft dns server loses connectivity to root hint servers RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are experiencing an odd situation, our DNS/domain controllers keep losing there ability to connect to the root hint servers. This lasts for about 5 minutes and happens a few time everyday. We have hopped on the DNS server while this is happening and have opened a command prompt and were able to successfully ping the root hint servers manually from the DNS servers so we know if is not a internet connectivity issue.

    We ran a dcdiag during the event and saw that the DNS servers were able to connect but they could not connect to the root hint servers.

    All help would be appreciated.
