DHCP and DNS (not within an Actice Directory)
Posted on 2004-03-24
I have a Windows 2000 server running DHCP and DNS, but I cannot get the DHCP clients to get registered dynamically in the DNS. Yes they are windows 2000 clients.
I am NOT running active directory. This might be the problem, but I decided to ask here before giving up. The reason we're not running AD is because we have a NT 4 domain that we cannot get rid of yet.
At any rate, all my clients (50 or so) get their DHCP assignments perfectly fine. And they can use DNS to resolve all over the place, but they cannot resolve eachother, becuase they are not being inserted into DNS. If I add a manual entry, they all find it fine.
There are no errors in Event Viewer from DHCP or DNS, or on the clients to give me any hints. Maybe I need more detailed logging??
THANKS for all help and suggestions, to track this problem down.
