Hi,

If I mount a static DNS Windows server (not AD integrated) and manage PCs from different domains, how can I authorize a specific range of IP to register on a specific domain?


Thanks

simplest is probably from the client side; you'd need to update the PCs themselves - add the DNS domain name into the "DNS Suffix for this Connection", and then the checkbox for 'register this connections addresses in DNS'

if you want something automated from the server it's trickier..the only way I can see it would be to use DHCP. Have 2 scopes, each with a scope option referencing one DNS domain or the other. Then you have to specify which PCs use which scope....that's not easy if they're all on the same subnet, but you could use static reservations in DHCP to assign a PC to a scope (and hence a DNS domain)

I assume none of the PCs are a Windows domain member?

You would also need to allow dynamic updates in the DNS zone for client to be able to register thier own DNS records.
