Finding the DNS server automatically
Posted on 2004-08-27
I have a Windows 2003 server running File Sharing, DHCP, DNS and a domain controller. The client joins the domain fine.
The client is configured to obtain an IP address automatically and that works fine. The client is also configured to obtain a DNS address automatically but that does not work. If I manually set the DNS server address then it works fine. I want to know what I have to do for the client to find the DNS server address automatically.
I don't want the server to run WINS unless I have to.
I have used ipconfig -release and -renew without any luck.
