We are having DHCP / DNS update issues and all recommned setting from Microsoft have not helped. On our DNS servers which are also DC's the ListenAddresses is set to a Null Value? Is this the default and if so should I try to change it as recommended in the following article?

thank you very much I do have DHCP logging enabled but it just says DNS update filed with the host name and not much more valuable information.

Does the DNS suffixes for the fails match your internal DNS zones?
Have you configured the DHCP service account, an have you configured all of your DHCP servers to use the same DHCP service account?
Is your DHCP service account a member of the DnsUpdateProxy group? (see here).

Yes everything is configured corrected and did open a case with MS support who confirmed our setup is correct. We are now looking at more of a network connection issue
