    cant ping pc with .domainname.local on the end?

    I cannot seem to find out whats wrong here....

    I cannot ping one of our computers when i add domainname.local on the end?
    It pings fine with just computername and fine with IP address?

    Its only a problem as there is a photocopier added to the machine, when users add the printer it always tried to add it as: printername.domain.local

    ?? thanks in advance ??

    tried all the usuall, dnsflush/renew/release

    Sounds like it's resolving via WINS but not DNS - is there an A record for the client on your DNS server? Check the DHCP client service is running on the machine as it needs this to register its A record IIRC... what does nslookup show you?

    It does not look to be properly registered in DNS. Is the not computer domain joined or have a localy configured ip as the PC may not no that it is on that DNS suffix.

    Might be an idea to have a look at the ipconfig on the offending computer to see if it has a connection specific dns-suffix listed.
