For those companies considering an upgrade to Microsoft Windows Server 2008, it is very important to understand how DHCP and DNS work together to power Windows Server 2008.For the uninitiated, WINS resolves computer names to IP addresses (similar to DNS), and WINS-R provides reverse DNS lookups.In addition to configuring DDNS, you can configure your DNS server to use WINS for name resolution.Would like to see about getting DHCP configured on a Cisco switch to auto-register the computers hostname with a MS DNS server.Had to troubleshoot a workstation hogging bandwidth.
