Configure DNS dynamic updates for DHCP clients on the dns server.

For info refer below article:

@sushil84 - please refrain from posting comments that simply duplicate the information given in a previous post :-(


As posted above, windows clients have had the capability to perform dynamic dns registration for many versions/years.

However, I have seen in many environments alternative clients that do not perform dynamic dns registration and so will assume that this is the reason you wish to setup DHCP to perform registration on their behalf.

It is really quite simple to establish and the answer has already been posted above so I will not re-post and cause any upset.

I believe KCTS was first to give you the required solution.
