My domain is uk.kam.com. I am running Windows XP machines with Windows 2003 servers.
Most servers are configured in DNS as server1.uk.kam.com = i.e. with their full FQDN.
I notice that on some servers, if I enter http://server1
(or ping server1), then I get a reply back from server1.uk.kam.com (i.e with the full domain name)
What is it that I have on my local PC settings that states my machine is already in the uk.kam.com DNS domain, and therefore I don't always have to enter the suffix?
