    Active Directory DNS

    Even though I have all my PCs from all subnets looking to an AD W2k server for DNS, only those that log into the domain are registered under DNS. How can I fix this?

      Do you have your PC’s register their own IP’s in DNS? If that is the case, you most likely have the secure update option enabled. PC’s outside of the domain then wouldn’t be able to register with DNS.

      If you use a 2000 DHCP server you can have that server take care of the registration, or you can allow unsecure updates (not really recommneded)

      lowlands is right. why have comps outside the domain register with DNS? it’s pretty risky security wise which is why there is secure update in DNS and/or AD intergrated.

      On the client computer, open network connection, LAN connection, settings, advanced, on DNS tab, the last two boxes will help you out on this task, however I agree with the previous answers that only authenticated computers should reach local DNSs

      Good luck
