  • Having problem in setting up DNS Dynamic Update in W2k.

    I'm trying to set up DNS Dynamic Update in Windows 2000 for DHCP clients but nothing is updated to the DNS. No active directory.

    Here is what I have done:

    I have changed the "Allow dynamic updates?" to Yes for the zone type Primary in Forward Lookup Zones and Reverse Lookup Zones on the Windows 2000 DNS Server.

    I have checked that the Windows 2000 DHCP Server has enabled the options:

    - Automatically update DHCP client information in DNS
    - Enable updates for DNS clients that do not support dynamic updates

    I have checked that the Windows 2000 client has the following TCP/IP settings:

    General tab
    - Obtain an IP address automatically
    - Obtain DNS server address automatically

    IP Settings tab
    - DHCP Enabled inside the IP addresses
    - nothing inside the Default gateways

    DNS tab
    - nothing inside the DNS server addresses
    - Append primary and connection specific DNS suffixes
    - Append parent suffixes of the primary DNS suffix
    - Register this connection's addresses in DNS

    I can ping to the dns server by name or ip address from the client machine.
    If I issue the following commands on the client machine:
    nslookup
    set query=SOA
    XXXX.com

    the result is:
    Server: Unknown
    Address: 192.168.1.16

    XXXX.com
    primary name server = test.XXXX

    If I issue nslookup test on the client machine,

    the result is:
    Can't find server name for address 192.168.1.16: Non-existent domain
    Default servers are not available
    Server: Unknown
    Address: 192.168.1.16

    Name: test.XXXX.com
    Address: 192.168.1.16

    I have issued ipconfig /registerdns on the client machine but nothing is updated and there is no error in the Event Viewer.


    Thank you for any help.

    Is the zone name exactly the same as the AD domain name? Did you configure option 006 (DNS) and option 015 (domain name) in the DHCP?

      Hi Daniel,

      Is the zone name exactly the same as the AD domain name?
      I believe AD domain name stands for Active Directory domain name. I'm not using Active Directory.

      Did you configure option 006 (DNS) and option 015 (domain name) in the DHCP?
      I see both options under Scope Options.


      Thank you.

        Hi,

        I believe that you have to set those two options in DHCP server in order to make it work 006 (DNS ) and 015 ( Domain Name)

          Hi azmantek,

          When I go to the DHCP, I see Scope Options and Server Options.

          Scope Options have both 006 and 015 and they have the correct ip address and domain name.

          Do I need to set anything in the Server Options?
