dhcp default gateway and nslookup result
Posted on 2010-01-04
i've just re-installed windows sbs 2003 premium since our server crashed days ago. thankfully, everything seems to be right... active directory is working properly and the rest.
my current DC/DNS server's ip address is 192.168.10.2.
my question is, in dhcp, how do i make sure or how to i create a policy wherein all the clients' (dhcp enabled) will get a default gateway to 192.168.10.2? it's getting 192.168.10.1 which is my firewall. if i remembered it right before the server crashed when i run ipconfig /all from a client i am getting this message
default gateway: 192.168.10.2
DNS Servers: 192.168.10.2
i wanted to have the same setting as before. i don't want my clients to connect directly to my firewall 192.168.10.1.
another thing, when i run nslookup on a client's machine i'm getting this message:
*** Can't find server name for address 192.168.10.2: Non-existent domain
*** Default servers are not available
Default Server: UnKnown
wouuld appreciate your help.
thanks in advance.
