DHCP DNS Domain Name

Hi,

I managed to write a script file to assign static IP Address, Gateway, DNS Server but not the DNS Domain Name.

Below is the syntax used to set the optionvalue:

set optionvalue <option code> <data type> <option value>

eg,
set optionvalue 003 IPAddress 192.168.1.1

003 => gateway option code
IPAddress => data type

AS for DNS Domain name, I used :

set optionvalue 015 String abc.com.my

But it gives me an error stating "Parameter(s) passed are either incomplete or invalid."

I've tried a lot of combinations but it doesn't work.

Anyone can help ??

If you mean that you want to set the DNS suffix search order, here is a little article that you can adapt to your script.

hi,

i managed to create the script file, but i still have one question.

WHY my dhcp server is showing 127.0.0.1 as the IP Address instead of the real IP Add in the MMC console window ?

thanks.

That's because that is the IP that the server is bound to right now serving IP addresses. You can fix this by going to the Administrative tools, then DHCP Manager and open it. Right click on the server name, choose properties from the menu, then click the advanced tab and then about half way down the screen click on the bindings button and you can then set the IP that it is bound to.
