How can I test my DNS server to make sure it is operating properly on a Windows 2008 R2 server? Can I run a stress or load test from there as well? If not how can I do that?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There are diagnostics which you can run from the DNS MMC snapin. A single VM running DNS server can handle probably tens of thousands of queries. Pick a few random domains and query for them using nslookup. If you get a valid response then you should be fine.
