Dns not updating records from dhcp

And make sure the DNS dynamic update credentials are correct and appropriate permissions are applied for this to work As I said in the question, configuring the DHCP server is not an option. It won't register DNS records for its clients, period.

I am having a problem with my Windows Server 2008 R2 DHCP server.

Good day guys I run AD with DNS and DHCP on 1 domain controller Yesterday, I did an upgrade on a laptop which entailed the following 1.

The GPO doesn't change anything, but enabling "Use this connection's DNS suffix in DNS registration" actually did the trick.

Please rewrite your answer to explicitly state this, and I'll accept it.

I've stumbled upon a strange behaviour with Windows machines, which seems to be fairly consistent between all Windows versions from Vista/2008 to 8.1/2012 R2; it doesn't happen instead when using Windows XP or Windows Server 2003.

The problem is this: when the network adapter is configured for DHCP and the DHCP server doesn't register DNS records on behalf of its clients (because it can't, or because it's not configured to do so), then A friend not on SF said: "That's normal, PTR is only updated by DHCP in Win2K ".

In Windows 2008 and above, there is an option in the DHCP scope to set up the DHCP server to automatically update the authoritative DNS servers with the host (A) and PTR) records of the DHCP clients.

You must enable DNS dynamic updates and choose the option for "Always dynamically update DNS A and PTR records, and to Discard A and PTR records when the lease is deleted.
