    33If you are using the registry edit for search list as well, have you tested that it really works? Displaying the parameters using "ipconfig /all" is not enough. One has to test name resolution -- not all related components get updated by a registry edit. Original Microsoft recommendation was to write the registry and then reboot(!).

    5 In my tests the registry change to search list does not affect name resolution -- e.g., manually add or remove a domain, flush dns and see whether ping with hostname only is affected. nslookup doesn't seem to care about the search list so one has to use something like ping that will use the dns client service.
