Which account to use to configure DNS update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    BPA results for a Windows Server Essentials 2012 R2 say that "Credentials for DNS update should be configured if secure dynamic updates is enabled and the domain controller is on the same host as the DHCP server."

    As the number of users is limited to 25, is it OK to use the domain admin account for DNS update?

    Thank you

  • Hi,

    >>As the number of users is limited to 25, is it OK to use the domain admin account for DNS update?

    Of course you can, it’s doesn’t matter with number of users. Or you could use a account member of DnsUpdateProxy Group(DNS clients who are permitted to perform dynamic updates on behalf of some other clients (such as DHCP servers).

    To configure credentials for dynamic DNS update

    1Click Start, point to Administrative Tools and then click DHCP.

    2In the console tree, right-clickIPv4, and then click Properties

    3Click Advanced, click Credentials, type the credentials that the DHCP server supplies when registering names using DNS dynamic updates, and then click OK.

    More information aboutCredentials for DNS update,  please refer to the following article:
