[LONG] 70-291 - DNS Dynamic Registration Problem
 
Hi everybody!

I'm studying on 70-291 MS Press self paced training kit book (v.1) and
practicing with MS Virtual PC.
In the last few days I've gone mad trying to get that "ipconfig
/registerdns" working between a DNS Client and a Server (each of them win
2003 ).
The problem was resolved only after decided to change the setting of the
client from the "obtain an IP address automatically" (requested by that
MSPress practice) to a static address.
Obviously I had previously set an "alternate configuration" with a valid IP
address in the same subnet of the DNS SRV and the correct DNS SRV IP.
The client was configured with the primary dns suffix of the same zone of
the DNS and the "register this connection's addresses to DNS" was checked
(as it is by default).
I even thought it was a problem of name resolution: I sniffed the traffic
and noticed that non DNS frames were exchanged between the client and the
server. So I decided to go straight through the problem and disable Netbios
resolution from WINS tab in advanced TCP/IP properties in both the VPCs (see
my other post..)

Anyway it worked only by setting up a dhcp on the DNS server or setting up
the static ip address in the client computer.

Is this problem due to something I've been missing/misconfigured, to MS
Virtual PC limitations or (just another) unaccuracy in the MS Press book
practices?

Thank for any reply!
Bye

Hi MD,

I am not fond of Virtual PC for server OSes. It will work, but there will
be little issues (like this one) that arise.

My suggestion is you download Virtual Server 2005 R2 Enterprise Edition (It
is a free download). Your virtual machines will work fine, but with VS you
have better control over networking features.

Good luck!

Hi Montreal MCT!
I will try VS 2005 R2 and see if something happens.
Thank you for your kind reply!

Sure I will.

Anyway I posted my questions at

microsoft.public.wondows.server.dns

too, perhaps a more appropriate newsgroup.

Things didn't change even with MS Virtual Server 2005 R2 actually .
I can't imagine there's such a limitation on both those SW, so probably I'm
missing something....
Still sadly stuck
