As you could guess, that is quite tedious and annoying.As far as my other settings go, in the IPv4 "Properties" under DHCP Server, I have gone to the DNS tab and made sure that "Enable DNS dynamic updates according to the settings below:", "Always dynamically update DNS A and PTR records", "Discard A and PTR records when lease is deleted", and "Dynamically update DNS A and PTR records for DHCP clients that do not request updates..." are all selected.I think I had trouble with DNS in the past when installing with AD, should perhaps it be installed BEFORE installing AD? -saige- In reverse lookup zone,subnet zone is not created automatically, it has to be created manually.I have DHCP set to "Enable DNS dynamic updates" but still no updating of PTR records is happening. Do you have the following set: Enabled DNS dynamic updates according to the settings below: [X] Always dynamically update DNS A and PTR records [X] Discard A and PTR records when lease is deleted [X] Dynamically updates DNS A and PTR records for DHCP clients that do not request updates... Have you check secure dynamic update in all the zone.I deleted all DHCP leases and tried restartig the DHCP services on the client side but still not updating. [X] If so, then I would ensure that your Reverse DNS zone is correctly created. Did you create the subnet under reverse lookup zone the client & server belongs too, if no, the ptr record will not be created as subnet is missing for the client to register its ptr records.As article applies to windows 2003,hotfix is not applicable but reg setting can be done on windows 2008 R2 to resolve the issue. scid=kb; EN-US;837061 Watch Guard acquires Percipient Networks to extend protection to the DNS layer, further increasing the value of Total Security Suite.This can have adverse affects with regards to the proper running of your network.Second, if your server goes down I would assume that your users inability to get to the internet would be the least of your worries, especially since this is a Domain Controller.
Zone is Active Directory Intergrated and Dynamic updates are set to SECURE ONLY.Statically configured (non-DHCP) clients register both the A RR and the PTR RR with the DNS server themselves.Edit: According to the article linked by The Cleaner below, the GPO I mentioned in my comment will not do what you want (yeah MS and closed-source software).If there are missing entries, you likely have your DHCP missing one of two settings: This is required if you have DHCP installed on a Domain Controller.
It is an issue on Server 2000, 2003, 2008, 2008R2, Server 2012, Server 2012 R2 and will likely be an issue in the newer builds.
You will see one recored called "Chair1.domain.local". In the DHCP console when you connect to your DHCP server on the bottom of the scope list you should have a folder called "server options" click on that and you should see your server options listed.
