Dhcp not updating on dns

Get started with your free trial today, and when ready, take 10% off your first purchase with offer code 'EXPERTS'.Most of the time the DHCP server assigns an Address and then updates the associated DNS entry.This is not the case with other computers on the network which will cause the DNS to update with any change of IP.I have compared the problematic computer's Host (A) security settings with another computer's Host (A) security settings.But checking the boxes for "Register this connection's address in DNS" and "Use this connection's DNS suffix in DNS registration" makes it work.

I ran into the same issue years ago the following group policy settings are how I resolved it.

Billy Also: This happens in cases where the client machine is not joined to the domain and has a missing or different suffix than the zone in DNS.

It can only register into a zone that exists on DNS and that zone updates have been configured to allow updates.

Statically configured (non-DHCP) clients register both the A RR and the PTR RR with the DNS server themselves.

Edit: According to the article linked by The Cleaner below, the GPO I mentioned in my comment will not do what you want (yeah MS and closed-source software).

This could easily be overkill, but since the above answers didn't cover things from a group policy angle here goes. sends option 81 and its fully qualified domain name to the DHCP server and requests the DHCP server to register a pointer resource record (PTR RR) on its behalf.

Solution Sounds like DHCP does not have the authority to update DNS at least for some machines. I had this happen in my last environment and made an account
