I have a pie-in-the-sky question.
Is it possible to set up my windows 2003 DNS server so when I type "ping hostname" it goes through a list of search domains then responds with the correct FQDN and ip address?
So here's the scenario:
1. I say ping hostname. Not ping hostname.domain.com just hostname!
2. My server is either primary or secondary for 3 domains. It trys the primary domain, the next domain and the balance of the domains.
3. Once it has exhaused all the local domains, it can't resolve the name or forwards it to a root server.
Can I set up such a scenario???
