Per was having issues with a client on a random basis not resolving web sites and what not.... and when he tested the problem out by putting a bogus IP address in the Primary DNS forwarders, he realized that the secondary ones were not kicking in......
So changing the value in this key did the trick...
HKLM\System\CCS\Services\DNS\Parameters\RecursionTimeout = 15 sec
Now what's interesting is that on a pre SP1 box this apparently gets set to 5 seconds... a post SP1 box this gets set to the value of 15.
The moral of this story?
Apply Service pack 1.
And just to let you know... while there are a few gotchas to look out for and known issues, we'll always leave the light on in the newsgroup for you and remember...you Microsoft Partners have those support options.
