Dhcp clients not updating dns
DDNS (Dynamic DNS) is a method to update DNS data (A, TXT, and PTR records) from sources such as DHCP servers and other systems that support DDNS updates, such as Microsoft Windows servers 2000, 2003, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2012 R2, and 2016.
This chapter provides conceptual information about DDNS and explains how to configure NIOS appliances running DHCP, DHCPv6 and DNS to support DDNS updates.
Microsoft Windows operating systems support a feature that dynamically updates the mappings of domain names to associated IP addresses assigned to hosts by DHCP servers.
This automatic updating, called Dynamic DNS Updates service, reduces the administrative overhead associated with manually administering DNS records of network hosts.
The system is also reachable from outside its domain.
The DHCP service can use DNS in two ways: You can enable the DHCP service to update the DNS service for DHCP clients that supply their own host names.
To set up one or more NIOS appliances for DDNS updates originating from DHCP, you must configure at least one DHCP server and one DNS server.
By applying the inheritance model in the NIOS appliance, settings made at the Grid level apply to all members in the Grid.
The default configuration not only wastes global Internet resources but also introduces a multitude of security, privacy and intellectual property concerns.
Leakage of private DNS updates is caused by inconsistent configuration between DNS servers and DHCP client/server entities.
A summary of these options for IPv4 is shown in bookmark1920.
It is similar for IPv6, except that the DHCP client and server exchange Request and Reply messages, AAAA records are updated instead of A records, and the FQDN option is option 39.
