Dhcp server not updating dns server windows 2016
If this is a good idea, how do we go about configuring settings so clients register their records automatically and DHCP servers no longer participate in this function?We have multiple hosts as of late that sucessfully pull a DHCP address and are domain machines that there is no A record being created for the host.1a) Even if these are enabled, you might need to make sure the DHCP server has permissions to update DNS records.If your DHCP server is also a domain controller, then you are probably fine, if not, then you may want to see if the DHCP server is a member of the "Dns Update Proxy" group in AD.
The permanent fix may be to upgrade from Server 2008 to Server 2012 R2 so we can use dhcp failover instead of split scope, but can we work around this issue by not having dhcp servers register DNS records for clients?
To check, right-click your DHCP scope and go to properties.
On the DNS tab enable DNS dynamic updates and set to "Always dynamically update..." Also enable Dynamic Update for clients that do not request updates.
For client computers to be registered and updated dynamically with a DNS server, either: By default, computers attempt to register and perform dynamic update of their DNS names and IP addresses with a DNS server.
For other types of computers, you can deploy Windows Server 2008 DHCP servers, which can perform proxied registrations and updates as needed for nondynamic clients.
If only the client registers its own DNS record, shouldn't it update immediately after it picks up a new IP address and overwrite the old record on the spot?
