Im running all my DHCP Clients DNS requests through a Linux DNS sinkhole, now they're not registering with my windows DNS server. Any ideas?

Registration of client machines in Windows DNS is initiated from the client machine. If the client machine is not directly using the Windows DNS server, it will not be able to register itself with Windows DNS. It will only ever be able to register itself with the server it's using for DNS, in this case, your linux server.

yes and in this situation we would place a win DNS server behind the linux server for client registration. But cannot in this particular case. Any options?
