I setup a RAS server at work. It is running Win 2003 and everything appears to be working fine. The problem is that if you VPN into that box for some strange reason you only get DNS resolution for resources on the network if you use the FQDN. In other words, if you try and ping testserver it won't work, but if you try and ping testserver.domain it works. This is really problematic because all my users have their resources mapped by just the computer name, not the FQDN. For instance, they will have Outlook setup to look for the email on mailserver not mailserver.domain so when they open outlook it fails to find the exchange server and returns an error.
So far DNS resolution works fine on the RAS box itself and every server/workstation I've tired. It only has this bizarre behavior when you remote in(VPN). Anybody seen this before? I'm sure it's something simple I'm overlooking.
