Hi,

I have set up a domain controller for a new child domain. Its has created the msdcs, sites and tcp records which are referencing the DC by name. However, it hasn't registered its own record in DNS. I have tried the usual ipconfig /registerdns but this doesn't seem to do anything. I have also allowed dynamic updates. Any ideas?

Where is the DNS server located?  Is the DC set up correctly to point to it?

The DNS server is located on the same network as domain controller, and yes the DC is set up correctly.

The strange thing i have discovered also is that PTR records are also getting created, everything but host records!!

Ok, well then what happens if you simply create the host records by hand?  Does everything work then??

As for your dynamic updates, did you set them to secure?
