in the TCP/IP settings of the network interface: As much as it may appear strange, this is the only solution to ensure Windows will register both the A and the PTR records for a DHCP network connection; otherwise, it will only register the A record. sends option 81 and its fully qualified domain name to the DHCP server and requests the DHCP server to register a pointer resource record (PTR RR) on its behalf.
UPDATE: Also looking for each workstation to be able to use dhcp to connect, but instead of getting ISP DNS servers, getting my internal one....
I agree, but i'm looking for an overall solution.
And make sure the DNS dynamic update credentials are correct and appropriate permissions are applied for this to work As I said in the question, configuring the DHCP server is not an option. It won't register DNS records for its clients, period.
They should be able to handle it, since all of them are domain members.
To make it easy for people to remember names (host names) are used to identify individual computers on a network.
