nslookup not showing router name as default server not hostname


  • Hi All,

    I wanted to install obiee 11g in windows 7 home edition. I am getting INST:08058 error so I have installed Microsoft loop back adapter and have static ip address( configured host file in system 32.The nslookup shows default server unknown. I want host name (salikya-PC)to be default server name while doing nslookup, so that I can install oracle bi products. Do we have dns client in windows 7 pro? I am not able to find. What changes I should make so that default server is hostname when i do nslookup? The following configuration I have made in TCP/IPV 4 in microsoft loopback adapter. If i change to obtain DNS server automatically, then in nslookup the default server name will be Server: router.belkin Address: DHCP Server IP in wireless LAN adapter) I do not know much about computer networking  much. Appreciate very much for any kind advice.

    Thanks, Sushil

  • Hi Neon55,

    When you use the router and configure TCP/IP automatically, it is a normal behavior that nslookup will show the router name.

    When you set IP address manually, there is no method to make nslookup show the hostname. Thanks for your understanding.
