  • Windows Server 2003 DHCP Option 135

    Hello all,

    I am needing to add DNS suffix search lists to all our clients using DHCP. I have looked in DHCP's predefined options and I cannot find option 135. Do I need to create this, if so how to I go about it?

    We are using DHCP running on Windows 2003 Server Enterprise Edition.

    Any help or information would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks in advance

    you can do this by using a GPO.
    It's not supported by Microsoft DHCP server.

    see:
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/294785
    DNS Suffix Search List
    This setting determines which DNS suffixes to attach to an unqualified single-label name before you submit a DNS query for that name. An unqualified single-label name contains no dots, for example "example". This name is different from a fully qualified domain name (FQDN), for example "example.microsoft.com".

    With this setting is enabled, when a user submits a query for a single-label name, such as "example", a local DNS client attaches a suffix, such as "microsoft.com". As a result, the query is changed to "example.microsoft.com" before the query is sent to a DNS server.

    If you enable the DNS Suffix Search List setting, you can specify the DNS suffixes to attach before the query for an unqualified single-label name is submitted. The values of the DNS suffixes in this setting may be set using comma-separated strings, such as "microsoft.com,serverua.microsoft.com,office.micro soft.com". One DNS suffix is attached for each submission of a query. If a query is unsuccessful, a new DNS suffix is added in place of the failed suffix, and this new query is submitted. The values are used in the order they appear in the string, starting with the left value and preceding to the right.

    If you enable this setting, you must specify at least one suffix. If you disable this setting, then the primary DNS suffix and network connection-specific DNS suffixes are appended to the unqualified queries. If this setting is not configured, then it is not applied to any computers and computers use their local configuration. The value of this policy may be set to the comma-separated strings of DNS suffixes. If the policy is enabled there must be at least one DNS suffix specified.

    The value of this policy may be set to the comma-separated strings of DNS suffixes. Do not use spaces between the comma-separated DNS suffixes. If you add spaces, only the first DNS suffix will be applied.
