Windows 7 DNS suffix problem
Posted on 2009-05-14
Strange problem in Windows 7 RC1
In my domain I have a DNS record setup for a server I will call "hostname" and also one for subdomain.hostname.
My dns suffix is set to domain.local.
On XP I can ping subdomain.hostname and it will append domain.local to the end and it will work
On 7 I can ping subdomain.hostname.domain.local and it will work, but if I ping subdomain.hostname it does not work.
DNS info is exactly the same for both XP and Win7
Has anyone got any suggestions?
