For external access you just need to ensure that an A record is created for www.ourdomain.com in the zone on the DNS server that is authoritative for that domain. That's all you need to do.

Is your Windows server the authoritative DNS server for ourdomain.com?

Your question is not at all clear. Could you explain more clearly your setup and the problem. You shouldn't need to do anything special to make DNS work, other than pointing your clients to the DNS server - normally you also run DHCP and this does that for you.

Detail : recently we changed our server! it is a virtual server, and I had to move our sit from old server to new server , now the sit is runnin on IIS and works with IP well
the company that has set our domin , changed domain info to "New IP" and 2 dns : "n1.ourdomain.com & ns2.ourdomain.com"
Now when I chang host name of site in IIS Manger to "www.OurDomain.com" it doesnt load and is not accessible...
also none of domain and DNS are Pingable ...
I set Some NameServers in DNS Manager but the problem is standing
and domain is not known for internat network ....
what shoud I do that the site come up via domain?

Still not clear, I'm afraid.

Is this just internal networking, or is it for external access?
Are you using Windows DNS on your Windows Server?
Are you using DHCP?
If so is the Windows server your DHCP server?
Have you pointed your clients to look at that DNS server?
Do you have an A record in your DNS zone pointing to www.OurDomain.com with the adress of your server?
What is "DNS Manager"?

It is for external access in internet network , the OS of server is windows server 2008 with a static IP (why DHCP server !!???).
I haven't install any special program! I just added "DNS Manager" from windows features ( it is s.th like IIS manager :D) and then added a new forward lookup zone and hosts and CName....
I dont know whether is there any basic task that I must do or ...
(It is the first time that I want to do that)
thanks for spending your time ;)

Ask the company that you registered the domain with what address they have registered for the authoritative name server.

Your concern isn't with your dns server but that of the ISP's dns server since its the one that houses the pointer for your domain name.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

It's possible that the authoritative server is in-house. That was certainly how we ran things where I used to work.

But, from what I have read in this thread, I strongly suspect that you are correct. All that is needed is an A record in the ISP's DNS server. This assumes that the internal server has a routable address and that the virtual NIC is configured correctly.

If this is a commercial setup I would really advise the OP to get a professional in to help; he doesn't appear to have a grasp the basics of IP networking, so I suspect there may be other concerns.

My problem solved :)
as ijack geussed , the domain company had not registered new IP correctly :| , thank yo ijack for your step by step guideness :) !

In fact I should ensured about 3 things:
1) the company has registered my domain and dns to Correct IP
2) then create a forward lookup zone in dns server of my server and add necessary records including NS ,Host(A) and CName
3) set HostName of webSite in the IIS Manager
