[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

    Bye!
