Mac OSX Lion server: DHCP and DNS

I am having issues with Lion server DHCP and DNS nicely.  

Both services are installed on the same server - Lion 10.7.2.  Open Directory is also installed.
Clients are able to get a DHCP address
Clients are able to access internal and external resources.

I am able to bind these machines to Open Directory just fine.  I can see the machines in Workgroup Manager.  

I see the clients with their IP addresses in DHCP.  However, there are no DNS entries created.  

Is this supposed to happen?  If so, is there a way to get it to create the entries.  Creating the DNS entries manually is not an option.  Thanks

No.  bootpd has no method for updating named's tables.  Microsoft built this into their AD-enabled DNS service, but Apple used the off-the-shelf approach.  In the long run, you'll likely want to follow the article if you want this to happen.

A nice write-up here

Basically it says replace the default DHCP server with something that works - bootpd (pronounced boot-P-D) does not play nice with named (pronounced name-D).

Thanks for the reply.  I saw that as well.  Any other way that Lion can do it by itself?
