Cannot access dynamic IP hosts by hostname in Windows domain
Posted on 2010-08-18
I have a Windows SBS 2008 domain controller. This SBS server is also the domain DNS server and DHCP server. A few of the hosts in the domain have static IPs, but most are dynamic. There is one Linux host in the LAN. It also points to the SBS server as the primary DNS server.
Windows workstations in the domaiin can resolve DHCP clients by name. The linux host cannot. Why? Is there something else I have to set/configure on either the SBS Server or the linux host to resolve by name on the linux host?
