Hello all,

We are using Novell DNS and Microsoft DHCP. Today we ran into a
problem
where we can't ping our DHCP Win9x machines. It comes back with "hostunknown" or returns a bunk IP (0.0.17.38 or something). My boss did a
little
experiment with nslookup on a Microsoft DNS server (our old DNS
system) and
found the problem didn't happen on it. So the theory is that Microsoft
DNS
pulls info from WINS, which Novell DNS is incapable of dealing with.
Anyone
have any ideas about how to fix or work around this?

Thanks,
ajr
