Basically, DDNS, in conjunction with DHCP and Active Directory, can provide secure dynamic updates for your A and PTR records in DNS.
For example, a client machine receives an IP address from DHCP and then DHCP automatically (as long as it is configured to support DDNS) passes along the host information for that machine to the DNS service.
The forward DNS entries ("A" records) for windows machines on the domain are populated automatically.
However, the reverse DNS entries ("PTR" Records) are not.
If I restart the machine, it still does not update. I hate to have to delete all this suff in forward, because I am not sure which items actually need to be static.
With the advent of Windows 2000, many administrators were elated to hear that it contained a new feature called Dynamic DNS (DDNS).I know they have implemented SSO for the Sonicwall, but that should only affect the SNWL as it only reads AD.Microsoft is conducting an online survey to understand your opinion of the Technet Web site.From what I can tell, the changes I made to DHCP and DNS have caused the reverse lookup zones to begin updating correctly.However, it seems to have had very little effect on the forward lookup zones.
