DNS Host (A) Record IP Address RRS feed

  • Question

  • Integrate Windows Server 2008 DNS Forward Lookup Zone Host (A) Record with that of an Online Dynamic Domain Name Services (DDNS) NO-IP update service. What I’m trying to accomplish is have the Windows DNS zone host (A) record IP change/update when the public IP address change on NO-IP services.

    Is there a way to link the two together on a Windows 2008 R2 DNS Server?

  • Hi Martiar,

    Based on my understanding, you want records in Windows DNS zone to be updated when the records be updated on Online DDNS.

    As far as I know, Windows DNS only support Secondary zone update from Primary zone when there's any update in primary zone with SOA records. There's no built-in configuration to support update from third-party zone. Maybe you need a script.

    Best Regards,

  • I wanted to come back and report on this post after several months of testing and using the solution that I final found and put in place that work consistently.

    As noted in my original post I wanted my Dynamic Domain Name Services (DDNS) NO-IP update service and my Windows Server 2008 DNS Lookup Zone to update to my (DDNS) NO-IP update service public IP whenever my ISP dynamic public IP changed. The sole purpose was for access to an internal residential LAN Web server. I wanted my internal and external LAN users to use the same URL to access the internal LAN Web server.

    The solution founded was to define a “Conditional Forwarder” on my Windows Server 2008 R2 DNS server. The forwarder pointed to an authoritative NO-IP update server.
