Hi,
I have 2 domain in 2 different locations

When i ping a machine
Ping machine name (I am not able to ping)
When i ping with the full FQDN i am able to ping

What would be the problem.

That machine is present in a different domain and different ip range but of the same company.

Goto properties of your nic...click on tcp ip...click properties....click advanced button...select the DNS tab.  Choose the option to "append these DNS suffixes in order".  Add the dns FQDN entry for your local domain first, then add the second FQDN.  ...click ok...ok ok......Now try to ping machine name.

Hi Sharath,

If you can ping by IP and FQDN then you are just missing a DNS Suffix from the Search List on the client.

Without this configured it will only Search for names within it's Primary DNS Suffix.

There are a number of ways to add this in. If you want to do it manually you can add it to the DNS Tab under Advanced settings for TCP/IP. It will be the box under "Append these DNS Suffixes in order".

It can also be configured in Group Policy (which is possibly the most useful option):

Computer Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ Network \ DNS Client
DNS Suffix Search List
