OSX server: DNS suffixes/search domains via DHCP?
Posted on 2005-04-07
we are currently in the process of implementing a Mac OS X server and upgrading all clients to X.
DHCP is working great, DNS servers are provided and activated on all clients.
But: We need to have two additional DNS search domains on all our clients, to give them the ability to use only host names instead of the longer FQDNs. But I can't find a way to provide this setting via DHCP or any other option on the X server.
Is there a solution or must I manually enter these domains on all clients? It'd be really cool to manage all network settings of the clients from the central server, so I hope there's a possibility. If it's not working via DHCP, then maybe with a script?
Note: We don't use the internal DNS service of OS-X-Server at the moment, because we have an established Linux Bind and a Windows DNS on location.
