Windows 7 DNS suffix problem

Hi All

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?

Thanks

I believe it's the same thing with Windows Vista. If so, the registry setting discussed in this article should help:
