I am able to ping the server both under server but not under the fqdn server.domainname.com

I am set up the dns to point to the server with fqdn and I have set up 15, 44, and 46 on the DHCP scope options.  46 is set for 0x8 and I do have WINS running and I can verify that the client is receiving the correct WINS server ip and the correct DNS ip from the dhcp server.

I am running W2K server in native mode.

Can someone help?

so you can ping the servername direct? eg, ping "servername"?

When you ping the FQDN, does the client resolve the IP address and receive timeouts or do you get the Unknown host error?

If you're getting an Unknown host error, then your client isn't resolving the name properly through DNS. Check that your DNS zones are properly configured.

If you're getting a time out,  verify that the name resolved to the correct IP address.  If it's the wrong IP, check your hosts files for an out of date entry.

Everything is working now that I have removed the greenbow vpn client from the machine.  But I have another problem where when I log on it says it can't find the domain controller but then I will log on to the local account and ping the fqdn and it sees it.

Thanks

I figured it out.  I pulled the workstation off the domain and then rejoined and everything is working.
