Windows Server DNS with non-Windows (Linux, Mac) Computers
Posted on 2014-04-30
How do I get my non-Windows (Linux, Mac) computers to properly register their IP address into my DNS server?
Server Name: AD1 OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 Roles: DNS, AD, DHCP
Dynamic Updates: Secure Only
Checked - Enable DNS dynamic updates according to the settings below. Always dynamically update DNS records.
Checked - Discard A and PTR records when lease is deleted
Disabled - Name Protection
I've tried setting a DNS dynamic update registration credential user and then added that user to DNSUpdateProxy.
However, when I connect a Mac/Linux computer to the network, it'll get an IP from the DHCP server, but it will not add it's IP into the DNS. I cannot add these computers to the Windows domain.
I've searched around but can't seem to find a definitive solution. Any ideas?
