    Hi chaps,

    Bit of an odd one, and i'm at a loss.
    In work all machines by default are now setup with their name & domain joined via sysprep through OSD

    Example - PC658.clients.global.company.com - this is reflected in the machines name by going into it's settings.

    ipconfig /all shows:
    Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . : clients.global.company.com

    so it's all recognized as working on that suffix. However - you can't ping it by typing in ping pc658.clients.global.company.com - when you ping pc658 - it resolves to pc658.global.company.com - missing the clients bit.

    Any other machine outside of this subnet resolves correctly, all settings are exactly the same, which makes me wonder if there is perhaps something needing setting on the local DNS server.

    It seems odd cos it's registering the DNS suffix and even shows it on the client machine - yet won't resolve.

    I'm stuck - has anyone come across similar?

    Maybe the local server needs reconfiguring then.

    There are 4 suffixes appended, and they're in the correct order also. same as other sites

    i hate dns lol - i think it'll ultimately end up in dns server being reconfigured i guess.

    It's not a major problem them staying as they are, but a remote wake up system looks for the "clients" section to resolve the machine name to wake it up - which'd be useful to have working
