We have a 2-way Active Directory transitive trust between our domain and a partner's domain. Both domains have DNS integrated. When we try to ping a server/workstation on the partner's domain by ONLY their hostname, it does not resolve. However, if we try to ping using their FQDNs, it pings just fine. Is this the expected behavior of AD DNS? If so, is there any way to configure AD DNS so that we'd be able to ping hosts on the trusted domain by only their hostnames? Thank you.
