You are now using Dynamic DNS and Wide-Area Bonjour! If you're doing it through DHCP it really shouldn't matter what OS anyway.Do all of the Macs have unique hostnames and set to use the network DNS as opposed to some outside DNS?Especially when you do it over a month after the last post.
"Saibot75" If "Secure only Updates" are being used (they should be) the DHCP server might not be authenticating, or it might not be using the correct DNS server set (ONLY), or it might not be a member of the DNSUpdate Proxy groups, or better be using the correct DNS Update credentials with a valid and current password.
If the Update Credentials works PREVIOUSLY then consider that this account may need an non-expiring password. DHCP server is NOT a member of the DNSUpdate Proxy group, should it be ?
A pair of Server 2012R2 DC's that run DHCP/DNS on them.
Most of our machines are not domain joined (or even Windows).
We have a problem where all XP machines are getting registered in DNS but our own developed equipment or network printers are not.
Both our equipment and the network printers use FQDN option 81 and requests the DHCP server to update the DNS and support for this option is also enabled in the DHCP server.
Do note that you can just add a new search domain if you want to view the contents of the dynamic zone, though.
As to setting up write, well, it's pretty simple: Open System Preferences Click Sharing Click Edit under the Computer Name box Check off Use dynamic global hostname Type in the desired hostname in the Hostname box Put the name of the key you created on the server in the User box (in the example, bonjour.example.com) Put your DNSSEC key in the Password box Check off Advertise services in this domain using Bonjour if you want to publish SRV records Click OKCongratulations!
Anyone have any idea how to make this work properly?
Have you tested to see if it's a domain member issue by joining a test culprit to the domain and then seeing if it updates DNS dynamically?
I have a DHCP server on a subnet (my firewall which routes my subnets does NOT support DHCP relay) For some reason this DHCP server (which is AD authorized) does not always update the DNS records when it hands out an address. /2 of the time it works fine, but about 1/2 of the addresses in the DHCP lease console show up with "pencil icon" meaning that the DHCP update is still pending. I can't find any relevent errors in client, DHCP server, or DNS server's event logs.
