Hello
I would like to resolve the name of a workgroup Workstation from a server in my domain.
My domain is mmp.local
I think I have to add an entry in the DNS management console (Windows Server 2003) but I don't know where

You can bypass DNS by adding the workgroup workstations hostname into your domain server's hosts file.

See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc751132.aspx


Hope that helps

Though using a host file will work, it has to be added to the host file for every pc and server.  The DNS server does not do lookups for clients using its own host file.  Thus DNS might be more convenient.  

To do so open the DNS management console | expand the server name | expand forward lookup zones | lick on your .local domain | in the right hand window right click in the white space and choose new  Host(A) | enter the PC name and IP address | leave the other defaults and click Add host.
