Hi All,

I've se up an DNS & DHCP on  the same server.

Ok, so when I go to  a client PC and tell it to obtain and IP address and DNS Server automatically I can't access the internet.  However if I enter the Preferred DNS server manually everything works fine.  I suspect an error in the DNS server configuration, but i'm not sure??

Any takers?

Please post the IP of your preferred DNS server and the IPCONFIG /ALL output of a client obtaining IP and DNS automatically.

Also, you should remove the .ROOT zone from your DNS Server and configure thr forwarder for "ALL OTHER DOMAINS" to the dns server of your ISP.

Cheers

You need to fill out options 005 and 006 on the scope.

Open DHCP manager.
Expand the Scope.
Right-click the scope and select Configure Options
Add the 005 and 006 options (DNS and Nameserver)

Close out of the manager.

You clients should now get the DNS server address with their address as long as the clients are set for automatic on both IP and DNS.
