I am currently looking at building a BIND DNS server for my company. The server will mainly be used to forward requests on to our ISP's DNS server. I was wondering if the clients pc's register in a database or hosts file similar to a windows situation where once the client pc has joined the domain it is listed under DNS and WINS and it is possible to resolve all hostnames to ip. All the pc's will be either Win2k or WinXP and this server will be the only linux server.
Are there any configuration changes that need to be made ? Or once named is configured for forwarding/caching it also propogates a file of client hostnames with ips ?
Your response are greatly appreciated
