This question already has an answer here:
How do I get my non-Windows (Linux, Mac) computers to properly register their IP address into my DNS server?
Server Name: AD1 OS: Windows Server 2008 R2 Roles: DNS, AD, DHCP
Dynamic Updates: Secure Only
Checked - Enable DNS dynamic updates according to the settings below. Always dynamically update DNS records.
Checked - Discard A and PTR records when lease is deleted
Disabled - Name Protection
I've tried setting a DNS dynamic update registration credential user and then added that user to DNSUpdateProxy.
However, when I connect a Mac/Linux computer to the network, it'll get an IP from the DHCP server, but it will not add it's IP into the DNS. I cannot add these computers to the Windows domain.
I've searched around but can't seem to find a definitive solution. Any ideas?
I changed from secure only to unsecure and secure to see if it would resolve the problem. It does not.
Okay so I look at my DHCP logs here is what I see:
10,04/30/14,12:15:52,Assign,10.10.3.58,m-pro.domain.local,28GFE112B263, 11,04/30/14,12:16:19,Renew,10.10.3.58,m-pro.domain.local,28GFE112B263, 11,04/30/14,12:16:36,Renew,10.10.3.58,m-pro.domain.local,28GFE112B263, 11,04/30/14,12:16:53,Renew,10.10.3.58,m-pro.domain.local,28GFE112B263,
The first number indicates the Event ID.
10 A new IP address was leased to a client.
11 A lease was renewed by a client.
30 DNS update request to the named DNS server
31 DNS update failed
32 DNS update successful
On Windows clients you'll see something like this:
30,04/30/14,10:14:38,DNS Update Request,184.108.40.206,court.domain.local,,
32,04/30/14,10:14:38,DNS Update Successful,10.10.3.50,court.domain.local,,
30,04/30/14,10:14:43,DNS Update Request,220.127.116.11,court.domain.local,,
So it looks like the DHCP doesn't even initiate and update request to the DNS server.
