I have a Windows 2003 server that is a DHCP server running in a Windows NT4 domain. The rest of my clients (XP Pro)and servers (Windows 2003) are in the new AD domain (domain.ds.st.gov). All of my clients and a couple of my servers get their IP's from the DHCP server (servers through reservations), the other two servers have static IP's.
Here is the problem. On the two servers that have static IP's, I can ping those servers and get the response -> servername.domain.ds.st.gov but on the clients and the servers that get their IP's from the DHCP server, I get a different response when I ping them -> servername.ds.st.gov The domain is missing from the string. This is screwing up several things not to mention that it makes no sense.
To get the points, identify and then explain what the problem is and how to fix it. I appreciate your help!
