Hi,
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.

is it in the same network segment as the machine you where pinging from? windows will do broadcasts to determine machine names

WINs.  Check if the PC name is there.  I bet it is.

Make sure, your DNS is configured for Scure and non secure updates.
If you want the non domain Workstation to be registered.
