Reverse dns zone not updating

Rated 4.47/5 based on 644 customer reviews

If so, your DHCP server may not be configured to auto-register their IP with the DNS server.To check, right-click your DHCP scope and go to properties.If there are missing entries, you likely have your DHCP missing one of two settings: This is required if you have DHCP installed on a Domain Controller.It is an issue on Server 2000, 2003, 2008, 2008R2, Server 2012, Server 2012 R2 and will likely be an issue in the newer builds.Even if you don’t have requirements for them I still recommend setting them up because they are extremely helpful when troubleshooting.

If you find that you can not resolve IP’s back to a name on your network check your DNS REVERSE LOOKUP ZONE.This article covers the default security settings for DNS zones: the settings are jacked up (or even if they are fine), you might try just blowing away the reverse zone and recreating it since you basically have a non-functioning reverse zone as it is...Try running an "ipconfig /registerdns" on one of the clients and see if it adds a record to the reverse zone.Reverse lookup zones are used to resolve IP addresses to a hostname.For reverse lookup zones to work they use a PTR record that provides the mapping of the IP address in the zone to the hostname.
