Hostname resolution

You have two choices for hostname resolution — domain name server (DNS) or NetBIOS Windows internet naming service (WINS). Both DHCP and WINS clients query IP servers to compare host names to IP addresses.

  1. Enable DHCP server-assigned dynamic addresses on an interface in DHCP < POOL> mode.
    ip dhcp server
  2. Create in IP address pool and enter the name in DHCP mode.
    pool 
                                           name
                                        
  3. Create a domain and enter the domain name in DHCP < POOL> mode.
    domain-name 
                                           name
                                        
  4. Enter the DNS servers in order of preference that are available to a DHCP client in DHCP < POOL> mode.
    dns-server 
                                           address
                                        

DNS address resolution

OS10(config)# ip dhcp server
                                 OS10(conf-dhcp)# pool Dell
                                 OS10(conf-dhcp-Dell)# domain-name dell.com
                                 OS10(conf-dhcp-Dell)# dns-server 192.168.1.1
                              

NetBIOS WINS address resolution

DHCP clients can be one of four types of NetBIOS nodes — broadcast, peer-to-peer, mixed, or hybrid. Dell EMC recommends using hybrid as the NetBIOS node type.

  1. Enable DHCP server-assigned dynamic addresses on an interface in DHCP < POOL> mode.
    ip dhcp server
  2. Create an IP address pool and enter the pool name in DHCP mode.
    pool 
                                           name
                                        
  3. Enter the NetBIOS WINS name servers in order of preference that are available to DHCP clients in DHCP < POOL> mode.
    netbios-name-server 
                                           ip-address
                                        
  4. Enter the keyword Hybrid as the NetBIOS node type in DHCP < POOL> mode.
    netbios-node-type 
                                           type
                                        

Configure NetBIOS WINS address resolution

OS10(config)# ip dhcp server
                                 OS10(conf-dhcp)# pool Dell
                                 OS10(conf-dhcp-Dell)# netbios-name-server 192.168.10.5
                                 OS10(conf-dhcp-Dell)# netbios-node-type Hybrid
