Automatic DNS Registration error RRS feed

  • Frage

  • Hi together,

    after setting up a DHCP-Reservation for an internal W2K12 Server (Name length 16 characters, automatic DNS Registration is enabled), the DNS Registration was not successful. After looking at the DNS entries the DNS entry was available, but the host name was wrong (only 15 characters). That means that a connection to the virtual server via the host name was not possible. 

    What is the reason for that behavior? I assume that it could be a problem in context with the NetBIOS maximum name length, but the maximum name length for a DNS entry is 63 characters, so that makes no sense.

    Do you have any explanation?

    Thank you in advance :)

    Netbios namen sind auf 16 Zeichen begrenzt, wobei das letzte Zeichen nicht verwendet werden kann (das enthält den Namenstyp, wenn ich das grad noch recht weiß...). Also bist Du für den Hostnamen eines Windows-Servers auf 15 Zeichen limitiert.
