csa 5.2 defining dns suffixes as home nets

Unanswered Question
Jul 18th, 2007

I am struggling to find any documentation that tells me how a system state defined by dns suffix is parsed. If i look in the dns suffix list (ipconfig /all) my local dns suffix for the company is always present, even if i am offline, this is also true at customer sites, they have their primary dns suffix in the list always, no matter where they are. I am wanting to use dns suffix to define an offline/online policy, since ip and mngt center reachable/unreachable is unacceptable, no supported redundant csamc and ip is just useless to define this function. Anybody tried to do policies like this ?

I have this problem too.

Hi Jan, it sounds like the machines in question have the DNS suffix appended to the computer name. These will always appear in the suffix search if that's the case.

Connection-specific or dynamic (DHCP) DNS should work for what you are trying to do.

I tried it and it seems to work as expected.
