Nslookup fails as these hosts are not on dns, they will only resolve through wins.


The dns server is running on solaris while the dhcp servers are windows based. Im not sure how easy (if possible) it would be to configure the dhcp server to add clients to the dns.

	I have a couple of hosts that use dhcp that I want to test through their windows hostname.


	The hobbit server has samba setup so that fping -Ae [hostname] correctly resolves these windows names.


	If I add them to hobbit using    [hostname] #

	(which I understand is correct for a dhcp address?)

	It's correct only if the dhcpsets automatically the DNS entry for your hostname. hobbit check the name with a DNS resolution. 


	It gives me bbtest-net: Cannot resolve ip for host [hostname] in the logs and the page in hobbit states DNS lookup failed and says up for Xms. How does hobbit do the conn test in this situation and is fping failing to work correctly from inside hobbit?

	can you set your dhcp server to add automatically your hostname in theDNS ? 

	could you also try an "nslookup hostname" from your hobbit server ? 



	I'm running 4.1.2p1.


	Apologies if this has been covered before but I couldn't find anything in the archives. 


	Thanks for any help,

	Craig Whilding
