[rhelv6-list] Question to /var/run/nm-dhclient-eth0.conf

I believe that setting is used only to ID the DHCP client with the DHCP server, which has nothing at all to do with nslookup (which is for querying DNS).


In order for nslookup to work, your DHCP server(s) need to be configured for DNS auto-updates, and your DNS server(s) need to be configured to allow auto-updates from the DHCP servers.

Subject: [rhelv6-list] Question to /var/run/nm-dhclient-eth0.conf


I'm using Red Hat 6 (up2date) on my laptop. Sometimes i must use Windows with vmplayer located on the laptop. The samba configuration on Red Hat works fine. I don't want to use the ip-adress of the laptop, so I added send dhcp-client-identifier "st00ni0029"; to the /var/run/nm-dhclient-eth0.conf. 
nslookup from windows can't find my hostname. 
What's wrong with my configuration?
