Apologies if this is not the correct forum. I will be more than willing to move my post if this is the wrong forum for the question. I have a strange issue with one Win XP SP3 client. The client go to a specific URL for a in house application eg <servername>/directory/index.php?dir=/name. If the user go to the URL as i typed it out she gets a DNS_Server_failure error. Your request could not be processed because an error occured contacting the DNS Server.
If i edit the URL in the browser to say server.domain.lan instead of just servername than it works. I have tried with my domain admin account and it is giving the same issue. On my pc it works correct though. The URL with only the servername does work and on lots of othere pcs in the org. I have compared DNS setiings to those of my pc and it is the same. I can ping both the servername and the FQDN from the affected machine with no issues
What could be the issue here?

Thanks for posting here.
Please check the DNS suffix list on this problematic Windows XP service pack 3 computer and insert the domain suffix entry “domain.lan” if it is not listed yet :
