|Message:||The DNS server encountered a “forwarders” directive in with no forwarding addresses in file %1 at line %2. Although the DNS server will continue running it will not be able to forward unresolved queries to the forwarders. To correct the problem, in the DNS console select the server in the console tree, then from the Action menu, click Properties and click the Forwarders tab. Add IP addresses for forwarders. For more information, see “Using forwarders” in the online Help.|
If you are using a boot file to boot the DNS server and plan to use forwarders to resolve queries outside your domain, the names and IP addresses of the forwarders must be defined in the boot file. If you are using DNS Manager to resolve queries outside your domain, the names and IP addresses of the forwarders must be defined in the DNS Server Properties dialog box.
Edit the boot file that contains the name and the IP addresses of the forwarders:
1. In Windows Explorer, go to the Systemroot\System32\Dns folder.
forwarders 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52
If you decide not to use forwarders, you must disable the Forwarder command in the boot file. For example:
;forwarders 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11
To edit the forwarders using DNS Manager:
1. In DNS Manager, right-click the specified server name.
