The dhcp server is configured to auto update client information
The dns zone is set to .local will the domain we are joined to is .org
when I run the ipconfig /registerdns command the registration never actually takes place and there are no events in my evt viewer
Any help would be apreciated

    Windows 2000 DNS updates from the DHCP Server.

    Ensure that Allow Dynamic Updates is set to Secure Updates only. And that your DHCP is allowed to update DNS.

    How do .local and .org fit together?

    DHCP will try and register entries using the Primary DNS Suffix. If that's set to .org and you only have a .local zone then there's nowhere for it to register the entries.

    Accepted Solution

    Try using the following commands at the command prompt:

    net stop netlogon
    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /registerdns
    net start netlogon
