How can you determine if Resource Records in a DNS zone (AD Integrated, Primary or Reverse) on a Microsoft Windows 2000 DNS Server are static or dynamic?

Also, is it possible to ascertain whether a Resourse Record in MS W2K DNS has been registered by the DHCP Client (W2K Pro and above) or the MS W2K DHCP server?

Thanks.

I'm not sure that you can figure out whether a record is static or was dynamically added.  you can however look at the time it was registered through it's properties in the DNS MMC console.

as far as I understand, DHCP leases addresses and then updates DNS.  the client does not do so.  you might want to wait for someone to come along and verify this.  In the meantime I'll try and find some addition backup to these comments.

Thank you Adam for your reply. Microsoft documentation specifies that depending on the configuration of  your DHCP client (NT4, W2K and above) and  DHCP server (as far as DNS goes), then DNS registrations can be done by either the DHCP client or the DHCP server.

This is no "homework". I did have a DNS resolution problem at work which I have already sorted out and this is why I did not pose the problem. I am trying to understand the concepts behind this problem and hence the reason for above question. I haven't been able to find an answer from Microsoft documentation and I was hoping one of your experts might be able to help. Thanks.
