Why does a machine outside the domain isn't registered in the DNS when connected to the network?
Posted on 2012-03-20
I have a mind bothering question,
During a test, I saw a strange behavior, a machine, not joined to the domain but connected physically to the network, didn't get registered in the DNS, however, i was able to ping it using it's name.
i'm trying to understand how could it be, i'm thinking maybe because of WINS? or a restriction in the DNS (if there's such) but i'm not too sure if it's even technically possible.
