appending domain suffix to subdomain RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to append a domain suffix to a subdomain?  Example:

    testing.subdomain.contoso.local

    Is it possible to ping "testing.subdomain".  I understand that you can ping "testing" and you will get "testing.subdomain.contoso.local" as the response BUT I would like to be able to type in "testing.subdomain" in my browser and get a response back for "testing.subdomain.contoso.local"

    On a mac, I can ping "testing.subdomain" and get the correct response BUT it doesn't work on a windows computer.  Is there anything I can add to group policy or DHCP to get this to work?  Or is this just a limitation of windows?

    Thanks in advance.
