Dynamic DNS updates not including domain name - No A record created

Posted on 2011-02-10

I have a W2k3 server running DHCP that is set to update the DNS automatically.  However, some DDNS updates are registering only a PTR record but no A record.

The ones that create A and PTR records are being reported back as "client.company.com" and work fine.  The ones that are reporting back as "client." with ho domain are only creating A records and a forward lookup can't be performed.

Any help is appreciated.

Looks like a problem with Dynamic Updates registration. Check what will happen if you change in DNS server settings, in zone properties Dynamic Updates from "Secure Only" to "Nonsecure and Secure"

Already set to that.

Here is a log and you can see the difference in the DDNS registrations.  As you can see, some include companyname.com and some dont.  If companyname.com is not sent, an A record is not created int he companyname.com forward lookup zone.

OK,

please run in command-line on a server:

netsh dhcp server <ServerIP> scope <scopeID> show optionvalue

and tell me if you see in the output option ID: 81 ? And please paste its entries.

Additionally, please ensure that your DHCP server is added into "DNSUpdateProxy" built-in group.

This group you will find in ADUC under User container. Add there your DHCP server(s)

 DNSUpadetProxy group
additionally to secure DDNS updates in DHCP server, specify an account on which they will be registered.
