Win2k Pro PCs aren't getting DNS entries from DHCP server on NT domain

Regarding the use of Windows 2000 as a DHCP server in an NT domain: In a previous Ask the Expert response, you stated this could be done. We have tried this, and although the PCs get an IP address, all Windows 2000 Professional clients don't get the DNS entries from DHCP. Can you explain this?

If the Windows 2000 Professional systems already have a DNS entry in their configuration, then the DHCP will not override it. In addition, the Windows 2000 clients have a switch to allow just the IP address and/or the DNS entries to be allowed. Check on these to see how they are set.
