If you have the DHCP service installed on your domain controller without a service account configured, by default, DNS registrations from DHCP clients will be prevented from being registered and will log event 1056 in event viewer.Solution: Complete the following steps below to change the credentials of the service account used for DHCP.For non-joined machines, it must be manually configured or scripted.If using DHCP Option 015 (Connection Specific Suffix), it must match the zone name and have "Use This Connection’s DNS Suffix in DNS Registration" along with "Register This Connection’s Addresses in DNS" checked in the NIC’s IPv4, Advanced, DNS tab.
DNS servers provide domain name resolution for network resources.I have several Linux machines, running Ubuntu (10.10, 11.10, 12.04). Sometimes, however, the system gets an IP address from DHCP, but fails to update the DNS server with it's hostname and IP.All of the systems are using DHCP with default settings. The Sys Admin who runs the DNS servers (Windows Server something) says that everything is fine, and any issues I'm having must be my fault. This problem today prevents my team from being able to access our subversion server, and the (Linux) workstations can't connect to LDAP for user authentication. However, the LDAP and Subversion servers are up with valid IPs, and can access other network resources and the Internet, but don't have an associated DNS entry.For those companies considering an upgrade to Microsoft Windows Server 2008, it is very important to understand how DHCP and DNS work together to power Windows Server 2008.In this post, you will learn how to configure DHCP to dynamically collaborate with DNS and WINS in Windows Server 2008.
