7. Configuring Clients
In this configuration you can configure clients that are members of the domain either to use the central DNS servers, or to use your Active Directory DNS servers. Additional tools that OUCS use for diagnosing security and configuration issues will only apply for clients using the central servers.
In this configuration of DNS you cannot configure your clients to register their
names and IP addresses automatically in DNS. Depending on the way in which
applications resolve names, occasionally this can cause problems if the name of
the system (as configured in the
[System] control panel) and shown in
Active Directory does not match the first part of the client's registered DNS
This is most likely to be a problem for software that expects to locate workstations by appending the DNS suffix to the name registered in Active Directory. Checking the operation with a machine where the name configured matches the name registered in DNS should reveal whether this is the problem.
