Re: Dual WAN with DNS issue

I don't think it is a DNS issue because your client is going to resolve the name when you first start the ping. The name is then cached locally until the TTL is reached for the DNS entry.

What happens if you stop the ping when it's failing and start it again?

Re: how to integrate mikrotik dhcp with active directory 2012

When you install the ADDS it will also add the DNS role to the server.

Set the MT DHCP to use the AD domain controller IP address as the DNS server.

On the AD DC set DNS to forward requests to the MT IP address.

Hopefully that makes sense. If not let me know and I can post some screen shots.
