Unhappy DNS with DHCP

I have set up a DHCP server and as clients connect to the netwokr the DHCP server assigns the IP address and passes any necessary information to the DHCP clients. However, it doesn't pass the DNS information the the clients.

If I hard code the DNS information in the clients then I can resolve the names otherwise I can't resolve the domain names.

What must I do to have the DHCP server pass the DNS information to the DHCP clients.

you mean your clients are not getting the domain namserver addresses? is that it? you can set this in the /etc/dhcpd.conf file

option domain-name-servers your-server-ips-with a-space sperating-them

put this line the file and restart the server
