|I googled around and did not find any useful info on the subject.|
My setup: 1 server (dns+dhcp+router), several client computers that often are moved around or replaced.
There is no domain and I will not make it.
The question is: Is it ever possible to dynamically update DNS for these computers?
DHCP is set up to "always update DNS".
Forward entries are not created. In dns debug log, there are no update actions for forward zone.
The funny thing is - it DOES update reverse-zone for dhcp clients, there are records for each registered computer in dns and in debug log. But forward entries are never created.
I tried changing various parameters on client machines (dns suffixes, primary suffix etc), tried creating zone and entering it on client computers too. It didn't work.
Well, has anyone ever been in such situation and solved it? Or maybe you know any links for guides for setting up dhcp+ddns WITHOUT AD?
It worked for a domain computer. (a passerby's business notebook) Flawlessly created forward entry in a 'domain' zone and correctly found in in nslookup. I'm wondering where's the catch :(
