Simple question about AD. please read it completely before answering quick and half answers. Thank you.
I have a small SMB network with a simple setup: A DSL modem/internet gateway with 192.168.1.1 that is giving out dhcp addresses to the clients. Giving it's own address both as gateway and DNS server (no way to change that - it's a very basic device).
I have a Windows 2008 R2 domain controller with 192.168.1.6 but when I want to join workstations in the domain it won't find the domain unless I manually set the DNS server on the workstations to 192.168.1.6 of course.
My question is: is there any way to be able to join the workstations in the domain without changing the DNS server on the workstations to manual DNS and pointing to 192.168.1.6
I know I can set the windows server to be the DHCP server but I don't want to do that for other reasons.
Thanks for any help in advance.
