Recently i have migrated all our infraestructure from W2K to W2K8, including DNS, DHCP, AD, but not WINS.
The problem that i have is with all the Pocket´s PC with Windows Mobile 5.0, doesn´t register on the DNS server. All other platafomrs, XP, W2K, W2K3, W2K8 registers itself on the DNS server with no problems, and the resolution by name its ok on all the organization.
It´s WINS needed for DNS resolution for the Pocket´s PC or Windows Mobile 5.0?
There is any problem with those and W2K8?
Any idea?

    Mmm, i dont know what is it.
    I´m just doing the migration on the company and I´m not familiarized with the Pocket PC.
    Like reference i can say that before the migration the Pocket´s works fine, and they register ok on the DNS.
    May be you can tell me what is AKU 2.3...
    Thanks for your time and your patience.

    The problem was on de DHCP serve, on the DNS tab.

    I check this two options and start working fine:
    1 "Always actualize dynamically DNS A and PRT"

    2 "Actulize dynamically DNS A and PRT to clients that not require, like Windows NT 4.0"
