Active Directory DNS Issues w/Windows 2000 DHCP
Posted on 2006-04-26
We are experieincing an issue where some clients (all workstations are XP SP2) are not registering forward lookups or A records into the Active Directory DNS' on our Windows 2003 network. Interestingly enough, some of these clients have actually registered reverse lookup entries. When I look the leases on the DHCP, I see the systems registered. No one has complained yet, but it has me concerned that there may be a larger issue going on. I've adjusted my DNS aging settings and DHCP DNS update settings, but nothing seems to work to alleviate this issue.
My DHCP servers are running Windows 2000 Server w/SP4 and are set to update the AD DNS per the client's request. The leases are set for 7 days. My AD zones on the AD DNS' are set for secure dynamic updates only and the aging is set for 1 day on both the no reresh interval and refresh intervals.
