No DNS Suffix Search List.
Just make sure you document it, so when one day comes up you dont want it anymore, you dont go crazy trying to comment installer sims 3 figure out wheres it coming from.This method has a catch in that it sets itself in a different registry key than if you set it locally through the GUI. .If in a workgroup, you can use dhcp Option 015, or a script.When doing DNS lookups (specifically using nslookup, for some reason most things are not effected) Windows XP Pro SP3 is using the DNS suffix search list for every single one.One DNS Suffix is attached for each submission of a query.You will want to alter the Primary DNS Suffix Devolution value.Unknown IP Routing Enabled.Here is the GP registry location: ntdnsclient, i'd recommend setting this in group policy though. .For example I lookup "m" but windows actually asks for "m" (m is my primary domain).My goal is to avoid having to type out long fully-qualified names for additional domains I frequently access (in our labs) that the company doesn't want to add to the DNS search list that everyone gets via dhcp.Just to illustrate what this means, you can test it by setting a suffix in Option 015 thats different than the domains zone name.However, its not supported under Windows dhcp at this time.I'm sure I have a misconfiguration somewhere in windows but I don't know where.I recommend the following work around solutions.
The Primary DNS Suffix also becomes the default Search Suffix, and will apply to all interfaces on the machine.
If the list contains m and m then the OS will attempt m first. .
