Help to task regarding DNS and Dynamic IP

    Question

  • I'm have a task I need some help with, so I hope someone could give me an point in the right direction. 

    Here is the question:

    Computer-A and Computer-B should use DNS server for name resolution, but they shall not have static addresses. Show what to do in the network, so these two can use the same DNS server. Computer-A and Computer-B have both Windows 7 installed.

    Take the necessary prerequisites.

  • Hello,

    the clients must use a DNS server on the NIC, can be one or more. BUT it must be configured at least one.

    And DNS servers can also be assigned with the DHCP server scope settings, not only manual.

  • Hi, and thanks for fast help. 

    I didn't think abouth configurate the NIC on the W7 machine with the DNS-address, my focus was on the server.

    Thanks for clearing that up!
