Hi,
I have installed a mew SBS 2008 server for a client and need to add additional DNS suffixs to the DHCP scope, but can't see anywhere to add it.  Any guidance would be appreciated.
Thank you,
James

Wow, they've made it quite complex in 2008, there's the "Group Policy Management", "Local Security Policy" & "Network Policy Server"

I trawled through each one but couldn't find and dns objects. Are you able to provide more specifc info?

OK, I think I may have found it...

Group Policy Mgnt > Forest: domain.local > Domains > domain.local > My Business > Computers > SBS Computers > Windows SBS Client Policy.  On the right hand side, under "Administrative Templates" right-click on "Network/Network Connections/Windows Firewall/Domain Profile" and click edit.  This opens the editor and I drilled down... Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates: Policy definitions > Network > DNS Client.  The on the right hand side is "DNS Suffix Search List".

Yep, that sounds about right. Your right tho, 08 seems more complicated - it's more because there's a bunch of new policies.. Mostly for vista
