Dear All

Has any one had any success with getting a Linux box to register with a DNS server hosted on a Windows 2k3 server?  This process takes place automatically on the Windows boxes but not at all on the Linux boxes.

We run our Intranet/Web servers on Linux but the whole of the rest of our network is run on Windows.  In the past we have used SAMBA to maintain WINS entries but would now like to also maintain DNS entries.

Is this a samba issue or a Linux/Unix one (I suspect the latter).  If Linux how does one fix the problem (PUMP/dhcp)?

I know it's slightly OT but assumed that with so many of you using samba, probably in a windows environment some one may have come across this problem before.

Many thanks
