IBM System i TCP/IP Domain Settings

I have a few questions about our IBM system i power 720.  This IBM is on a windows domain but I realized it never had it's domain settings correct under TCP/IP.  The Following items have settings that I believe are incorrect and I would like some input:

Domain Search List - *DFT    (shouldn't this be my windows domain name?)

Domain name server - *NONE  (shouldn't this be our 2 DNS servers?)


1 Solution
Domain Search List: should be the same as your IP domain name.  Example: If Experts-Exchange had a iSeries they would configure this as experts-exchange.com.  This value is added as a suffix to any host name lookup done.

Domain name server: Should be setup to 1 or more DNS servers that you use internally.  In a Windows environment this is typically your DC'.
