Re: Debian Server hostname and Win 2003 DNS server

Hi and thanks all.

Ahhh, the Socrates method, my fav form of instruction.

Mirco, as Ron is hinting at and as I said (see the "first idea" I had) run a
DNS server. DNS came about because sys admin became to in shape and
physically dangerous to there managers from all the running around they had
to do to keep the hosts files in sync. Edit the DNS entry, all machines pick
up the new data: IT works stay soft and flabby, chicks don't dig them, they
stay motivated to stay at the office, managers can continue to push IT sys
admin around with out threat of physical harm. Everybody is happy.

Maybe i miss an important information (or not?'s in subject).
There's a Win 2003 DNS Server.
My problem is that all the clients can ping them self using hostname,
and they can ping all other windows server in the same way, but not
those 2 Debian server.

Chris understand well my situation.
So i try his suggest:
# apt-get install dnsutils
# touch /etc/nsupdate.conf

edit that file in this way:

update delete A
update add 86400 A

(where is my Debian fqdn, and my
Debian ip address).
Then run the following command:
# nsupdate -v /etc/nsupdate.conf

Here you are my output:

Outgoing update query:
;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: UPDATE, status: NOERROR, id: 0
;; flags: ; ZONE: 0, PREREQ: 0, UPDATE: 0, ADDITIONAL: 0

couldn't get address for '': not found

If i try to ping, my debian machine resolve
the record.
Any other suggest?
