Windows guests not auto registering in DNS
Posted on 2011-03-14
I have a new ESXI 4.1.0 348481 farm with 4 ESXI hosts. I am using a distributed virtual switch. I have two subnets configured (172.24.7.0/24 & 10.25.2.0/24). When I build a Windows 2008 R2 Server it will not auto register in the Domains DNS. If I move this Server to another subnet on a different Domain the Server will also not register in DNS. I receive this error on the 2008 R2 guest:
Warning DNS Client Events Event ID 1014 Name resolution for the name domain.com timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.
Windows XP SP3 will also not auto register in DNS except there is no error logged in XP. Also, whether 2008 R2 or XP no errors are logged on the DNS Server's event log. Also, other subnets on different ESX hosts(Not using the distibuted virtual switch) have no problem when the Windows guest wants to auto register in DNS.
Why don't these guests auto register in DNS?
