TCP/IP & DNS issues

By ax435 ·
This is a very interesting problem. We have set up numerous windows 2000-workstation on our network. They seem to work fine but after a few days or so, the TCP/IP address seems to become unbound. What I am trying to say is in the morning a user willbe working fine and later on that day or just a few minutes later they can't brows the web or send mail. You receive you can find DNS error while browsing the web. However, if you do a release and renew that seems to fix the problem but more often or not the user has the reboot. This is become a real nuisance.
We are running Novell 5.0 ad our DHCP servers with Novell client 4.70 and our DNS server are UNIX computers, and I have not found a solution yet.

TCP/IP & DNS issues

by abubin In reply to TCP/IP & DNS issues

Do you have any win2k server at all? If I am not mistaken, there is some compatibility issues with Unix DNS server. I believe it is BIND server or something. Try updating to the latest version. Also, if you have AD, this problem would be more complicated.

Also, did you configure the DHCP server to provide the correct information? Such as DNS server and gateway and such.

Hope it helps...
