Windows: Nslookup returns a “UnKnown” Default Server

Hey guys,


So maybe this is helpful to some maybe it isn’t. But perhaps this is common sense if you ever took a 410 exam, but hey, not everyone is gifted. 😉


Say you get what this picture shows you, what could it be?

What I’ve seen in the field and from MCSA studies is that this is caused by a complete lack of a reverse DNS lookup zone configured. Set one up on your PDC and this problem should be fixed. 🙂
