Windows 2003/2008 environment.
Our Domain Controller is on Windows 2003 hosting DNS.
 
Problem:
 
I cannot ping: testservername without adding the domain prefix: testservername.test.local
   
I am currently on the same network but I am on a different domain. I have been able to do this in the past.
   
Thanks for your help.
