Hi again guys.
More DNS fun, todays mindbender is as follows:
I have somewhere in the region of 100 Windows 2003 servers.
All are registering correctly into the forward lookup zone.
When I look at the reverse lookup zone, the time stamps for the DNS entries are dating back to December last year for most servers.
If I perform an ipconfig /registerDNS on a server with an old record, it does update the record succesfully, reflected in the time stamp to the DNS record.
I was about to enable scavenging for this subnet as it also hosts some DHCP clients for our IT dept. Before I enabled it I thought it prudent to check the server records - I'm glad I did!
Does anybody have any suggestions as to why the time stamps would be so dated? My understanding was that by default every 24 hours that a 2003 server with a static IP would re-register and update it's DNS record.
Thanks in anticipation.
