dhcpd and/or BIND (named) problem
I have been using a RedHat 9 machine as both the DHCP server and name server (named) for my home network. I had 5 Windows machines and the one Redhat machine on the network with names such as: Neumyer001, Neumyer002, Neumyer003, etc. They all worked fine, and were available for lookup in the nameserver as:
I can refer to them as neumyer001 or neumyer001.neumyer.com and everything works fine.
Now... I have recently installed Fedora Core 2 on Neumyer003 (it was formerly one of the windows machines). Now it successfully acquires an IP address from the DHCP server, *but* it ends up being listed in the nameserver like this:
If I try to ping neumyer003 or neumyer003.neumyer.com, it fails.
If I ping neumyer003.neumyer.com.neumyer.com, it is successful.
I have temporarily worked around this problem by giving Neumyer003 a static IP, and manually updating my zone files. However, I'd really prefer to have it use a dynamic IP via dhcp
Any dhcpd and/or named gurus out there that know what the problem is/was?
Thanks in advance!
