Intranet DNS Lookups Not Working
Posted by Mont Rothstein on 12 December 2017 04:34 PM


DNS lookups for resources outside the intranet work fine but lookups for any intranet (specifically domain) resources fail.


  • Make sure you have administrative rights
  • Remove all keys below HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\DnsClient\DnsPolicyConfig
  • Restart the DNS Cache

Note: This is a workaround because the issue can/will re-occur. The cause is unknown. It may have something to do with DirectAccess. However it has occurred in environments where DirectAccess is not being used.
