Dynamic DNS update from Linux DHCP Server
Posted on 2009-07-07
We have our primary DNS & DHCP servers running on linux. we also having active directory in our company. we have enabled zone forwarding on our linux dns server to point out the active directory DNS server. Also i have enabled scavenging on active directory integrated DNS servers.
In our company machines are frequently changed to different subnets and we change the hostnames too.so we do have duplicate entries in our active directory integrated DNS server. it will take 15 day to scavange these records. I don't want to reduce the default scavange period time.
Is there is any way to configure dynamically update DNS records in the Linux DHCP servers.so that when ever a new ip address assigned to a computer from Linux DHCP server same will be updated automatically in the Active Directory Integerated DNS zone.
