RE: How common is lack of DNS server diversity?
>MS DNS, WinNT4 and below, have broken search algorithm implementations. >DDNS, Win2K, is currently untested. Search algorithm? I thought we were talking about making full use of the dns server list - i.e., if first server doesn't respond try the next one in the list. Win2k, at least, has no problem doing this. (I do not remember having any problem with the domain search list in previous MS OSs. That is, if I specify almaden.ibm.com and ibm.com, it will find xyz.ibm.com if I just use the name xyz and xyz.almaden.ibm.com does not exist.) Tony Rall
