Server won't register DNS
Posted on 2006-07-19
I configured a server 2003 which picked a IP address via dhcp after installation. After I joined to the domain and finish win updates I configured a static ip address and add "mycompany.local" suffx to the connection as check register suffix box. I ran ipconfig /registerdns and force synchronization between DC's with DNS. I ping the woksttaion and come back timed out but looking at the DHCP address. I repeat the register several time but same results. At the end, I manually edit the DNS record. I go back to the workstation, flush dns ping and same results.
I went ahead and manually deleted the entry on DHCP ping again and same thing. I have a WINS server but I'm not sure if a should edit or even if I can edit the entry. How can I do to have this server register the hard coded IP address?
