DNS and DHCP best practice for windows server 2008 domain
Posted on 2010-01-11
hi dear experts
i will need some help on a very unconfortable problem i do have on the network.
we use application distribution software that needs 100% correct DNS entries.
we have a server 2008 domain with 6 locations around the world and we offer vpn access to laptop users.
right now, usually about 10% of the domains machines have incorrect DNS entries.
Ive been searching all over the net to get some information about it, but a lot of people say that it is nearly impossible to get a dns to 100%, except of using reservations for ip adresses.
well, we dont want to use reservations, so I would be very happy if somone could give me some nice hints on the configuration of dhcp leasetimes, dns configuration etc.. so that i will at least get the DNS entries from 80% to 99% - that would be good enough.
thanks in advance.
