DNS client nslookup


I just got done setting up a DNS server and a client. However, when I do an nslookup with just the hostname, I got this output:

Microsoft Windows 2000 [Version 5.00.2195]
(C) Copyright 1985-2000 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\dev9>nslookup dev9

Name: dev9.
Served by:










C:\Documents and Settings\dev9>nslookup


C:\Documents and Settings\dev9>

When I do an nslookup with a FQDN, I get this output:

C:\Documents and Settings\dev9>nslookup


C:\Documents and Settings\dev9>

Is there something wrong here? If so, please point me to the right direction.

Thank you Smilie

Do you have a domain set on that workstation?

yes i do. i have the client subscribing to dns server 1192.168.1.2.

i dont see the point - do you try to find your dev9 from the internet?
if so - then set your ws dns server to point the internet dns server first (your dns order determine the query to which server),
you have that output because your ws directly accessed the internal dns server, and there is nothing wrong with that.
