  • Hi adr1an5,

    >>check the DHCP Server or Scope option > DNS tab to "Always dynamically update DNS records" correct?

    >>"Dynamically update DNS records only if requested by DHCP clients" then only the PTR record will be registered by the DHCP server and the A record would be registered by the DNS Client, correct?

    Yes, your understanding is right.

    "Dynamically update DNS records only if requested by DHCP clients"

    By default, the updating process is like this:

    "Always dynamically update DNS records"

    DHCP sever will perform DNS dynamic update on behalf of its DHCP clients.

    Yes.

    When a DHCP server registers and updates DNS pointer (PTR) and address (A) resource records on behalf of its DHCP-enabled clients, it uses the information contained within an additional DHCP option: the Client FQDN option (option 81), which permits a client to provide its FQDN and any instructions to the DHCP server that is used to process DNS dynamic updates on its behalf.

    More information please refer to the following article:

  • This info was helpful but I have more questions...

    I assume I would need to check the DHCP Server or Scope option > DNS tab to "Always dynamically update DNS records" correct?

    If left at the default, "Dynamically update DNS records only if requested by DHCP clients" then only the PTR record will be registered by the DHCP server and the A record would be registered by the DNS Client, correct?
