    HI,

    I've got a multidomain enviroment, with two domains. The root domain of the
    forest is city1.domain.net and then I have another branch in the same office:
    city2.domain.net

    So now I want to configure the Domain Suffix Search Order for all clients in
    the network. All are windows based XP or Vista. I did some research, and
    found that Microsoft implements this options in the group policies, but I've
    edited the option in the default group policy for city1.domain.net, activated
    it and added city2.domain.net, but still when clients get DHCP options, they
    don't get the Suffix list, so I need to write the FQDN in order to point to
    the computers on city 2.

    Also I tried to manually create option 135 in DHCP, because my Windows
    Server doesn't have it in default options. I manually created the entry, and
    added it to the DCHP scope, but clients don't get the suffix list yet.

    Please can anyone help me solve this?, I just need the clients to have
    city2.domain.net in the suffix search order without adding it manually in
    each computer, so I really dont care if it's by DHCP, or Group Policy, but
    none of them is working for me..

    Thanks! :)

    Met this kind of issue, and the value is a straighforward 'unsalted'
    registry entry, so you can 'push' it using a logon script, with 'regedit /s
    {path}\registryfile.reg'

    REGEDIT4
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters]
    "SearchList"="my.domain.net"
    "UseDomainNameDevolution"=dword:00000000

    Second value is optional but it stops numerous out-of-bounds connections
    being attempted when the server can't be contacted.
