Linux DNS XP Client

Linux DNS XP Client

Hi all,
    I've got a weird problem to say the least.  I am using Redhat 9 for DNS
and DHCP with a bunch of mixed windows clients.  The Windows XP Pro clients
seem to forget that the primary DNS exists and use the secondary and
tertiary servers.  It wouldn't be bad but I'm running a private domain
behind a firewall.  The 2nd and 3rd DNS are for my ISP and the 1st is mine.
Windows 98 doesn't seem to have a problem.

My dhcpd.conf is as follows:

ddns-update-style interim;
subnet 192.168.1.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 {
        max-lease-time 3600;
        default-lease-time 3600;
        option domain-name "pcdataoffice.com";
        option netbios-name-servers netserver.pcdataoffice.com;
        option domain-name-servers 192.168.1.18 , 64.65.223.6 , 64.65.208.6;
        option broadcast-address 192.168.1.255;
        option subnet-mask 255.255.255.0;
        option routers 192.168.1.1;
        range 192.168.1.100 192.168.1.200;
        }

I'm sure it is something with Windows XP but does anyone know why this may
happen.

You may have more luck in a Windows newsgroup as it does appear
to be Windows related.

I've found my XP machines to not play nice with linux "if" a Windows server
OS is running somewhere.  If I use W2003 server as my dhcp and dns, then my
linux box "goes away" from the XP Pro machines.  It has to do with active
directory rejecting linux/samba for some reason.

1. External DNS doesn't work for Win XP client thru RH 7.2 server!

Greetings,

   I can ping the DNS server from my Windows XP home edition client
but nslookup (any name resolution) does not work! The server is a
Redhat Linux 7.2 box. If I boot the server with Windoz 2000 server
everything works fine because Windoz is running a DNS server. I tried
starting a DNS server on RH as well but I am positive its NOT working.
I have the client TCP/IP setup correctly to use the first two ip addr.
of the outside DNS server and the third is the ip of the
gateway/server (W2K or Linux). The question though is this - Why can't
I use an outside existing DNS server and what could I possibly be
doing wrong on the client?

Thank you,
Prasad
