  • Windows 7 does not request DHCP option 119

    You'll have to look at other options, eg pushing out a search list via GPO etc.

  • Hi Hydor,

     

    Thanks for posting here.

     

    The windows client machine doesn’t request option 119 from DHCP server and Windows DHCP server will never offers that option to the client machine. Hence we don’t get option 119 over to the Windows client machine.

     

    We can issue the DNS search list for Windows clients via group policy.

     

    Thanks.
