dojcha

Dns is active directory integrated, DNS resolve
hostname to IP for windows NT,2000, Linux, Unix
clients, but not for Windows XP or Windows Server
2003.
Example:
If I try to ping computer.domain on Windows 2000 or
NT or Linux, I got reply;
If I try on Windows XP or Windows server 2003, I got
anknown hostname.

Enyone know what happening here?

computer.domain? Does the domain name not have a dot in it like domain.com?
That would be a single label domain name, Win2k starting at SP4, WinXP and
Win2k3 will NOT register in a single label domain zone, you have to make
registry entries to allow a single label domain name on Win2kSP4, WinXP and
Win2k3.

It is important if you expect a correct answer.
I cannot see you monitor if you ping FQDN and you get host not found then
the only thing I can do is guess that the machine has not registered its
addresses in DNS. When you say you cannot ping 'computer.domain' that is all
I have to go on. 'computer.domain' would mean you have a single label DNS
name and Win2k3 and WinXP cannot register in a Single label domain zone
without modifying the registry.

You got the answer you did because, it is important to give good information
to diagnose a specific problem. Had you said you get host not found if you
ping 'computer.domain.com' I would ask you to post your ipconfig /all and to
verify with nslookup, netdig or dig that the name resolves in DNS.
So when you use one of the apps above does their names resolve?
