PDC AD DHCP & DNS

By picturethat ·
I have a pdc when I run dhcp & dns the both work intermitantly. Are they designed to work together or just irriate me. To get fast logins I need dns run on my w2k server but when using dhcp it seems unstable???

Make sure that you set up a sever option in dhcp 006 DNS Servers. It tells the dhcp server to let anybody getting ip addresses from it to use certain dns servers.

I am not sure this will help. But here are a few general rules.

If you have any machines using hosts files, especailly servers, do not put DHCP client entries in the host file.

The DHCP server must have a static address, a subnetmask and default gateway.

Is DHCP authorized to run on the server?

Do not use ICS when using either DNS or DHCP.

There are troubleshooter wizards for both DHCP and DNS, have you tried them?

Are you using an H type node in the NetBIOS over TCP/IP setting in DHCP?

Good luck,
Dan
