Ptr not updating records in dns

What this means in practice is the following: This means the DHCP server computer account will own certain records in DNS, such as the PTR records and even some A records for older hosts.(However, it's unlikely that you would have many NT 4.0 hosts in your environment.) This can cause the following two problems: For this reason, DHCP servers could be added to a group called Dns Update Proxy.

By default, the DNS Client service dynamically updates host (A) resource records in DNS when the service is configured for TCP/IP.

When a DHCP server is added to the Dns Update Proxy group, its records aren't secured, meaning that other DHCP servers can update the records.

In additon, hosts can change the records and then become the owner of the record.

I've stumbled upon a strange behaviour with Windows machines, which seems to be fairly consistent between all Windows versions from Vista/2008 to 8.1/2012 R2; it doesn't happen instead when using Windows XP or Windows Server 2003.

The problem is this: when the network adapter is configured for DHCP and the DHCP server doesn't register DNS records on behalf of its clients (because it can't, or because it's not configured to do so), then A friend not on SF said: "That's normal, PTR is only updated by DHCP in Win2K ".
