  • Hi,

    >>is there  any way to tell in DNS, if a server registered inself, or a DHCP server did the registration? we are not using dynamic update credentials.

    Do you mean that you want to know the owner of the record? If I misunderstand, please let me know.

    If you want the DHCP Credentials to own ALL records, then you must configure DHCP to ALWAYS update all clients whether they ask or not, otherwise, DHCP will register it for them, and you will see SYSTEM as the owner.

    If you configured credentials but haven't added the DHCP Server computer object to the DnsUpdateProxy group, then it won't work.

    You need to do the following configure:

    1. Add the DHCP server to the Active Directory, Built-In DnsUpdateProxy security group.
    2. Configure DHCP Credentials.

    Please refer the following article about how to configure DHCP credentials and DnsUpdateProxy:

    Hope this can help you, if you have anything unclear, please let me know.
