FOG server resolving properly your Windows hosts .



  • Hi .

    There is a little tip (for newbies) to make your server resolving your windows hosts (netbios names) .

    If in any case your DNS doesn’t work properly .
    You should install : winbind libnss-winbind (if available)

    You have to edit your /etc/nsswitch.conf and add wins :

    hosts:          files wins mdns4_minimal [NOTFOUND=return] mdns4 dns
    

    This is hepfull to know wich host is up or not .

    Regards

    Story of our lives… “Superior takes DNS administration away” and then later on… “Superior doesn’t administer DNS properly or at all.”

  • It was not configured like that unfortunately i’d have to do it myself .
    It was useful in my A.D Domain to resolve properly hosts by the GNU/Linux server (Ubuntu 14.04) where “FOG STACK” was installed . ;)

    I haven’t tried this myself but as far as I understand things this is meant to be configured on your FOG linux server.

    @Bobby Maybe you can tell us in which scenario this was helpful for you. Thanks!



  • It’s for a config with dns service on the linux server with fog, not for config with dns on a separated windows server ?
