DNS not getting Updated using the DHCP Clients RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,

    From last week I am facing very strange Issue. The Clients machine gets the IP address from the DHCP properly , but they are not getting registered within the DNS Server

    I checked DNS and DHCP , and there are no relevant Events . Dynamic upadte DNS option is also checked withinn DHCP console, 

    When I Manually Perform Flushdns and register DNS , it works fine 

    Is it issue on Client Side or something else , Please guide me with further steps

  • Hi,

    What is your configuration? 

    If you choose “always dynamically update DNS records”,

    you still need to configure Credentials and add the server to the DnsUpdateProxy group.

    There is a checklist for you:

    1 You should ONLY use the internal DNS servers on all machines. Any ISP's addresses will cause it to fail
    2 If any of the DCs are multihomed (multi NICs, multi IPs, and/or RRAS is installed, will more than likely fail, as well as cause other significant problems
    3 The Primary DNS Suffix MUST match the zonename in DNS
    4 The zone in DNS MUST be allowed updates
    5 If the zone updates are set to Secure Only, the machines MUST be joined to work, otherwise, the DHCP server must be configured with Credentials or the DHCP server object must be added to theDnsProxyUpdate group
    6 The AD DNS zone name cannot be a single label name ("DOMAIN" = bad, "domain.com" = good)
    More information about dynamic update DNS ,  please refer to the following article:
