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

WatchGuard Case Study: Museum of Flight

“With limited money and limited staffing, we didn’t have a lot of choices in terms of what we could do to bring efficiency. WatchGuard played a central part in changing that.” To provide strong, secure Wi-Fi access within the museum, Hunter chose to deploy WatchGuard’s AP120 APs.

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
