on client vpn, is there a way to support only using short hostnames for DNS requests, rather than typing full FQDN?
my previous security appliance supported this option.

What about iOS search domains connected to VPN. Search domains are not able to be set there. It needs DHCP scope option 15 to work. Is there a way for the MX to have that? It will simplify the configuration on mobile devices.
@lauraCanadaIT There is no way to customize the DHCP options for the client VPN subnet that I'm aware of. If you issue a mobile config profile to your iOS users to set up the VPN, perhaps you can supply the DNS suffix with that config.
@MRCURUnfortunately, The MDM from Meraki does not allow custom profiles and iOS profiles doesn't allow it as well. I'm a little stuck here.
Has anyone found a solution to this? All our users have shortcuts to files e.g. \\server01\file having to recreate shortcuts and/or training users to use \\server01.domain.local\file is going to be tiring.
Appending DNS suffixes to the VPN connection is greyed out in Windows 10 and adding the suffix to the "DNS Suffix for this connection" option doesn't seem to help either? Plus our DFS namespace seems to be unreachable even with the suffix added.
Try doing this on the local adapter instead of the VPN adapter, you should be able to append domain.suffix under IPv4 > Advanced > DNS settings. In my case it was greyed out on the VPN adapter, but not on the local adapter.
