Dns reverse lookup zone not updating
After checking “Use this connection’s DNS suffix in DNS registration” in the advanced TCP/IP settings all went fine.The record appeared in the reverse DNS zone as expected. I do think you can use the GPO if you want to fine-tune the registration behavior as it contains 3 options. I haven’t found a way to do this by GPO, I might have missed it though.Configure it to allow dynamic updates by using the DNS tab of the Scope Properties of DHCP Manager and setting one or both of the following: Dynamically update DNS A and PTR records for DHCP clients that do not request updates.In most Domain Name System (DNS) lookups, clients typically perform a forward lookup, which is a search that is based on the DNS name of another computer as it is stored in a host (A) resource record.A reverse lookup takes the form of a question, such as "Can you tell me the DNS name of the computer that uses the IP address 192.168.1.20?" DNS was not originally designed to support this type of query.Finally, the domain tree, as it is built into DNS, requires an additional resource record type—the pointer (PTR) resource record—to be defined.This resource record creates a mapping in the reverse lookup zone that typically corresponds to a named host (A) resource record for the DNS computer name of a host in its forward lookup zone.
However in the past I have seen strange behavior with the GPO settings below Administrative Templates\Network\DNS client section, and today was just the same. Below Computer Configuration DNS Client there is a setting called “Register PTR Records”.
This reversed ordering of the domains for each octet value is necessary because, unlike DNS names, when IP addresses are read from left to right, they are interpreted in the opposite manner.
When an IP address is read from left to right, it is viewed from its most generalized information (an IP network address) in the first part of the address to the more specific information (an IP host address) that is contained in the last octets.
I thought GPO preferences would be the easiest way, but this setting is located below HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Current Control Set\services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\Register Adapter Name and the GUID is different for each system… The following command can be executed in order the check the required option: netsh interface ipv4 set dnsservers name="Local Area Connection" source=dhcp register=both In our environment we deploy all workstations using SCCM so the above is definitely a reasonable solution.
hello, I'm new user of Infoblox, I am facing a problem with Dynamic Host update on a DDNS zone.
Search for dns reverse lookup zone not updating:
Infoblox use for dynamic configuration of hosts (Windows clients) in our Windows environment customers are responsible for sending the RRset The DHCP and send the PTR, but the PTR type RRset is not being created by Infoblox.
