Hi,

Anybody knows if DHCP Option 119 is supported by Windows 7 SP1 Clients? We are planning to upgrade our systems to Windows 7 SP1 but I am not sure yet if Option 119 is supported.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Hi there Kristan,

 

 

Sorry to say that Windows 7 does not request DHCP option 119 and Windows DHCP server will never offer that particular option to the client machine. Therefore it’s impossible to get option 119 over to the windows client machine. The issue however can be solved by issuing the DNS search list for Windows clients via the group policy

Hello Kristan Lai,

I understand your problem. As far as I know, Windows 7 OS service pack 1 is not supported for DHCP Option 119 servers. We can search for it on the DNS search list for clients via the Microsoft group policy. You can select your desired list of supporters at microsoft.com/?id= 275553 and Configuring DNS Search Suffixes.

Thanks,

Max
