Workstation A records missing from DNS server

Last Modified: 2012-08-13

I have recently noticed that our DNS server has not registered a number of computers on our network.
I can successfully ping these workstations fine. NSLOOKUP (workstation name) on the DNS server and from other computers on the network is unsuccessful. Then I noticed that the A records are missing from the DNS server.
These computers also exist in Active Directory.
Any reason to why these workstation name A record are not showing up on the DNS server?
