DNS not recognizing static name allocation
« on: February 28, 2023, 03:31:19 pm »
So I have two machines I'd like to have static IP issued by the server.

Some time ago I created "Objects ❱ Static_Workstation" which included Laptop1, IP, MAC. This was working fine, my domain joined laptop (Laptop1) does get static IP and I can ping it via name on the network.

In the last few days I've added another device (same thing Laptop2, IP, MAC). The device does get the allocated IP but DNS doesn't seem to recognize the name. If I ping Laptop2 all I'm getting is "Ping request could not find host Laptop2. Please check the name and try again."; ping with IP works just fine.

What could I be doing wrong? I've restarted server (probably number of times already) DNS and DHCP; Laptop was restarted many times too.

Typing this, I realized that the only difference between Laptop1 and Laptop2 was that the latter was pre-created in the AD. I created an object called Laptop2 in where I want it to exist. I then joined the laptop and it worked (apart the DNS allocation).

Any suggestions would be greatly received,
