I am trying to find out how can I give out more than one DNS suffix on a DC with the Windows DHCP server. Is it possible somehow? (Win 2K8 with XP, Win7 and Linux clients)

You can use DHCP option 119 for a domain search list. It's format is a String which is semi-colon delimited (e.g. mydomain.com;dev.mydomain.com)


Which DHCP Client OS Support DHCP Option 119 Domain Suffix Search?

Thank you. A bit closer to the solution, but the win7 clients do not ask/ignore (haven't made a tcpdump yet) the 119. I read it is only work from GPO, but the clients are not logged into the AD, so I am stuck here –  Gabor Vincze Apr 6 '12 at 7:08
