We cannot ping a dns name from our server console. It errors that it cannot resolve the name. The resolv file is pointed to our dns servers and the host file only contains an entry for the server itself.

We are running 6.5 sp7. I have deleted the resolv file and let inetcfg re-create it. The host file was re created from scratch and the services were reloaded using the WS2_32 Reload (both hosts and resolve).

Another service needs this to work to send notification emails out. Are we missing something so that the server performs the lookup like a client?
