Reverse Lookup Zone does not work W2008R2

We have a windows 2008R2  domain with DNS server .
We have DHCP (ISC's DHCP) server on Freebsd system.
The network is built on Cisco and divided by VLANs.
But we have problem with PTR records for a client who receive IP from DHCP.
Really Example:
All the A  records in Forward Lookup Zone are working fine, but not registering a PTR record. Dynamic update enable .

But when the client configured static IP on you PC all working fine, A records and PTR records are created without any problems.

Anyone having this issue? Any ideas?

I believe the DHCP server has to offer Option 81 to update both A and PTR records.

the client machine would need to get a new ip and re-register it's dns.

Releasing renewing the IP might get the new options from the dhcp server.
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

you might even consider releasing the ip and the rebooting.
