how to see Linux host on SBS domain
Posted on 2011-09-27
I have a linux host (Slackware distro) getting its dynamic IP address from our SBS 2008 domain server. I've also added this linux host to the WORKGROUP workgroup via Samba. After doing that, domain workstations (running Windows) can see this linux host in My Network Places.
However, I have a 2nd linux host, WEBSERVER, also in the WORKGROUP workgroup, and it cannot ping, ssh, scp, etc. to the above-mentioned host using its hostname, LABRAT. I can, however, ping the various Windows workstations on the domain from WEBSERVER.
Also - the SBS server is the DNS server for the domain and both Linux hosts have it in their /etc/resolv.conf.
So, why can't linux host WEBSERVER see linux host LABRAT if the SBS server is the domain DNS server? What do I have to do?
