    Hi,

    I have an issue with Zeroshell (2.0 RC3) DHCP server and Windows clients.
    In my dhcp.conf, i have the option 15 defined as is for my subnet :
    option domain-name “localdomain.com”;

    Problem is, my dhcp windows client don’t get this option as the field “DNS suffix for this connexion”, under the DNS tab in the TCP/IP v4 advanced properties of my ethernet card isn’t filled.

    This cause the resolution of the fqdn to work but not of the hostname.
    Eg : srv4.localdomain.com works but not srv4.

    Any idea ?

    Regards.

    Maybe I misunderstood your problem , but I simply filled with my domain-name the text-box “Subnet Options>> Domain Name” in the dhcp config page , and I can access resources via hostname , as well as with FQDN from win7 clients

    C:Windowssystem32>ping dell_jo

    Esecuzione di Ping dell_jo.redfive.lan [192.168.192.7] con 32 byte di dati:

    You got it right.
    I set it up too.
    But on Windows 8 it didn’t work out of the box, I don’t really know why.
