Dynamical DNS for DHCP on win2k
Posted on 2002-04-14
I have a DHCP, DNS installed on a win2k DC. I want to use the dynamical dns features of the win2k domain. It does work properly of the win2k pro, but when I let an NT4.0 sever use DHCP, it does not appear in the DNS manager. The NT server has already joined the win2k domain. And, as Microsoft said, I did check the option "Enable Updates For DNS Clients That Do Not Support Dynamic Update." in the DHCP manager.
The result is also failed when I use a windows98 client to do this test.
I don't know which step I missed.
This is the additional info after I posted this question:
Well, I made a mistake that I didn't create the reverse zone x.x.in-addr.arpa. When the reverse zone was created, I can see the PTR record of the NT server is there, with the host name "ts-nt". Since it didn't show the FQDN like the win2k pro clients, I doubt that client didn't send its FQDN to the DHCP server.
Could anyone explain it and give me a solution?
