Ticket #1268 (closed defect: fixed)
DHCP missing NETBIOS options when PDC is enabled
|Reported by:||anonymous||Owned by:||jacalvo@…|
|Severity:||critical||Keywords:||DHCP NETBIOS SAMBA|
Ebox needs to add two lines to dhcp.conf when PDC is enabled:
option netbios-name-servers 172.16.0.1; <-EBOX SERVER
option netbios-node-type 8; ### Node type = Hybrid ###
In a standard two interface setup, this is not an issue because netbios automatically looks to the default gateway (EBOX). If, however, ebox is not the default gateway, workstations will not be able to find the PDC to join the domain w/o having to manually add the WINS server interface entry at each workstation.
I tested this fairly thoroughly this evening and I would consider this a major bug for anyone using ebox as a PDC that is not the default gateway.
