DDNS configuration for ubuntu servr

Dear Experts:

Have configured Ubuntu server as DDNS server attached dns static , dhcp config and dhcplog, for your reference . Even after assigning IP address manually as per the static zone to the desktop/workstation still the DHCP request from the same desktop/workstation to the DDNS server and also ddns server releasing the IP for these request has been observed,

For the host manjula  assigned ip as below
manjula                 A       192.168.1.81

Still the same host is requesting for IP to the DDNS server and further IP from the DDNS server is also released for this host. Please help to resolve this.

Thanks in advance.

Check the network config on the workstation, it appears to still be set to DHCP.

Hey D,

I don't see manjula listed in your dhcpd.conf and 192.168.1.81 is not in your DHCP subnet range, so I'm not sure what the issue is here.

Why not just configure manjula to have a static IP and not try for a DHCP lease?

...most of the workstations/desktops even though assigined IP manually...
What exactly do you mean by a manually assigned IP?  Do you mean you have an A record in DNS for each workstation, or do you mean that you manually configured all of the network information on each workstation (IP/netmask/gateway/etc)... or both?

Please provide more information.

Hi sir,

I have  A and PTR record for each workstation in DNS  and the same have been manually assigned to the workstations but again these workstations are querying the DHCP server and also the IP (different than the DNS been released ).
