Any windows xp professional workstation that has released and renewed their dhcp lease.-workstations must release and renew their dhcp leases in order to receive the new configuration that has been updated on the dhcp server. once they receive this new configuration, they will be able to access the new dns server. however, windows 98 uses netbios names and not domain names. therefore only the windows xp professional workstations that have released and renewed their dhcp lease will use the new dns server.incorrect answers:a, d: computers that have not released and renewed their dhcp leases will still be configured with the ip address for the old dns server. only when they renew the dhcp leases will the computers be configured with the updated dhcp settings.b: windows 98 uses netbios names and not domain names. therefore windows 98 workstations cannot use the new dns server.references:james chellis, paul robichaux and matthew sheltz, mcsa/mcse: windows server 2003 network infrastructure implementation, management, and maintenance study guide, sybex, alameda ca, 2003, pp. 223-227.
