    [BIND9 DNS-Server] nslookup works on linux client but not on windows


    Hello everyone! I am new to this forum and I believe some here should have the competence to guide me on how to solve this problem. I'd be very grateful for any help!

    So here's the scenario.

    I'm putting up a BIND 9 DNS Server on my local LAN network.

    3 PC's:

    nes-pc - The DNS-server which is running Lubuntu with Bind 9 dns-server installed and configured.

    miri - Just my laptop running Lubuntu.

    RADAMAX - Stationary computer running Windows 7.

    The PC's running Lubuntu seems to have no problem whatsoever on running nslookups on all the names specified in the zone-files, Yet when I run nslookup from my windows machine I get the following error message:

    Code:
    C:\Users\user\>nslookup miri
    Server: UnKnown
    Adress: 192.168.1.55
    
    *** UnKnown can't find miri: Non-existent domain
    Yet, miri IS listen in the zone files.

    I've set internal static IP's for all of these computers. Their IP adresses have been reserved in the router by me.

    I've already configured the forward and reverse lookup zones for 'nes-pc'.

    The resolv.conf files on 'nes-pc' and 'miri' has been setup to use the 'nes-pc' as the main DNS-server. I've also specified the adress to the 'nes-pc' dns in the network IP/TCP-Properties on my Windows machine (RADAMAX).

    All the resolv.conf files have been write protected in order to make sure that the respective machines network-managers doesn't change their content.

    The following are my settings:

    On my 'nes-pc' (BIND9 Server):

    named.conf.local
    Attachment 4667

    forward lookup zone
    Attachment 4668

    reverse lookup zone
    Attachment 4669

    resolv.conf
    Attachment 4670

    syslog
    Attachment 4671

    on my 'miri' laptop:
    resolv.conf looks exactly the same on this pc as the one on my 'nes-pc'.

    On my Windows 7 machine: (RADAMAX)

    Pinging the machines works just fine. From all the pc's. Pinging websites outside of the lan network also works fine. But when I run nslookup on RADAMAX it just won't find anything.

    Anyone who knows how to solve this?

    Thank you!

    What does your zone file look like?
    What does your resolve file look like on the windows machine?

    I can't paste my resolve file to this forum because for some reason you are not allowed to post posts which includes links until your post count reaches 15. Although there are no links in my zone files. Just the name of my dns-domain or forward lookup zone maybe I should call it.


    I will try and get back to you tomorrow if I don't manage to solve this myself.

    What about your resolve file on the windows machine?
