Option 1Configure your local DNS server to have the reverse-lookup zone that the Windows 2000-based computers can use to register. For example, if your computers are using a 10.0.0.x IP address, create a reverse-lookup zone of 10.in-addr.arpa on the local DNS server on which the Windows 2000-based computers are attempting to register.
Option 2Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.
