I can't ping a host only a FQDN. Any suggestions?
I have some spare time so i am back trying to get my macs to authenticate with server 2008 Active directory domain.
I have noticed that a client mac cannot ping a host name eg server1 only the fqdn eg server1.prentonhigh.local.
I have checked my forward lookup zones and the server i am trying to ping is in there and it's in the reverse as well.
The mac itself is pointing at the correct dns server so I am a bit stuck!
Anyone have any suggestions?
