DHCP on server 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a yellow mark by the DHCP server under tools and DHCP server. I anticipated a green mark. the network seems to work fine other than I cannot install Symantec Endpoint.

    The only warning is: The DHCP service has detected that it is running on a DC and has no credentials configured for use with Dynamic DNS registrations initiated by the DHCP service.   This is not a recommended security configuration.  Credentials for Dynamic DNS registrations may be configured using the command line "netsh dhcp server set dnscredentials" or via the DHCP Administrative tool.  warning 1056 .

    The netsh line did not work and I do not see any settings in the DHCP set up to address this issue

  • Hi wilf_thorburn,

    DHCP credential is used for secure Dynamic DNS update, we may create a credential on AD users and computers for DHCP server, then configure this credential on DHCP server:

    Besides, we may also add the DHCP server to group DnsUpdateProxy group.

  • Hello,

    just to be sure, you are aware that you need to specify a user in the netsh command? For the GUI way right click IPv4 -> Properties -> Advanced -> Credentials.
