Linux DNS Server Track Windows Clients with non-static IPs (DHCP from other device)
Posted on 2003-10-27
I have a Linux 9.0 with Samba 2.2 acting as a domain controller. While the Windows 2000 Workstations can ping (see) other workstations and the server, I cannot ping the workstations from the server by name. DNS is working as server finds external sites and caches them. I could build a host file, but my workstations IP's occationally change as the firewall is providing DHCP. Although I can fix this by going to static IPs, this would be alot of work in a larger environment. Any ideas?
