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 ?

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.
