On a Windows Server 2003-based DHCP server, you can dynamically update the DNS records for pre-Windows Server 2003-based clients that cannot do it for themselves.
To enable a DHCP server to dynamically update the DNS records of its clients, follow these steps:
- In the DHCP management console, select the scope or the DHCP server that you want to enable DNS updates for.
- On theÂ Action menu, clickÂ Properties, and then clickÂ DNS.
- Click to select theÂ Enable DNS dynamic updates according to the settings below check box.
- To update a client’s DNS records based on the type of DHCP request that the client makes, click to selectÂ Dynamically update DNS A and PTR records only if requested by the DHCP clients. (This update will only occur only when the client makes a request.)
- To always update a client’s forward and reverse lookup records, click to selectÂ Always dynamically update DNS A and PTR records.
- Click to select theÂ Discard A and PTR records when lease is deleted check box to have the DHCP server delete the record for a client when its DHCP lease expires and is not renewed.
