Windows File Server cluster resource fails DNS registration

We have windows 2019  file server clusters that get "Cluster network name resource failed to register DNS name" errors"  


We have performed the below actions by simply removing the troubled DNS record(s) then failing over and forcing a dns registration; however this error seems to continue to return.  Do you have any recommendations as to the root cause of this?

Hello,

Could you please confirm if the cluster members has permissions on the DNS record of cluster object?

Refer to the section - Creating DNS entries for the CNO

@S R
Are you suggesting that we use STATIC DNS entries for the clusters per that article?  Is there a way to do this dynamically and still get the cluster name, host 1, and host 2 permissions to the entries?

@Philip
For us, step 1 in fixing this in the past is to DELETE the entries and the failover will recreate them as dynamic.  These are not static but continue to cause errors.

Is Name Protection enabled in DHCP for DNS registration?
