VMWare Debian DHCP DNS Problem
I am running a VMWare Server 2 on Ubuntu Jaunty and 2 Debian (testing)
clients in it, which get their IP address automatically (and variably)
through DHCP. The latter does work without a clitch. Unfortunately, I
cannot access the two clients through hostname, even though they are
provided by the clients when they get their IP address, judging from the
hostname entries in "/etc/vmware/vmnet8/dhcpd/dhcpd.leases", since in
put "send host-name HOSTNAME;" in "/etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf" of the
clients. But somehow this information is just not available through DNS
I know there are other solutions to make sure I get the right host
through hostname (e.g. using enries in "/etc/hosts"). But in my case I
need the IP address to be flexible/variable and want to identify each
client host by their hostname only.
I have already searched Google for some time now, without any progress.
Maybe someone of you guys has an idea. It would also help to understand
VMware's DNS a little better.
