and , well , now this entry EXISTS in my zone files..!!! a winxp client "client-hostname" given is "nasslaptop" that runs on a vmware machine on top of the 'fedorahost' laptop... well it has been assigned 2 ip addresses for the 2 virtual network cards i have 'installed' in it - 1 to connect to the wireless driver of the fedorahost and one to the wired driver... It was my difficulties with getting the DHCP server to automatically update the DNS server that lead me ask a question on the web site.Though I got no perfect answer, I was able to piece together enough to generate this working solution.on the contrary in the 2nd entry (192.168.0.100) the dhcpd server didn't receive any (? Unless you write a script to do it, you won't get dhcp writing A records. DNS is Domain Name System, nothing to do with dhcp.) hostname from the client (most prob a win XP machine, but i can't eveen identify it from a server standpoint) and so it generated according to my rules a set of default names based on the ip address ("dhcp-192-168-0-100.nebula.org")... so i can do "nslookup nasslaptop" and "nslookup 192.168.0.111" finally there is "starfish" another winxp pc, which doesn't get the fqdn in 'client-hostname' but it can "set ddns-client-fqdn" to "starfish.nebula.org".... and what's more weird is that i can nslookup the PTR record of starfish... The hard bit is getting the two to talk to each other, as this is less well documented and the documentation that does exist does contradict itself.Click Here to receive this Complete Guide absolutely free.hello everyone, it appears i haven't quite grasped the meaning of despite the numerous tutorials i went through in the internet and the detailed read of that i did...
Likewise, in a web browser, I can browse to a Google IP but not the host name.
Here is how you can enable the DNS integration with the Windows Server 2012 DHCP server: Once done, click OK to save the changes that you have made.
RHEL5.6, bind-9.3.6, and dhcp-3.0.5 So, after I fixed my problem with getting DHCP to parse the MAC addresses for these virtual machines, now I need to figure out how to get it to update DNS when one of those virtual hosts is up and active.
I had the issue a yesterday, and refreshed my installation of the OS and things worked.
I got back to work today (this is on an auxiliary laptop that sits at my desk for web browsing and personal... I have absolutely verified that it is not my network causing the issue.
