Dynamic DNS not working for domain computers
« on: September 28, 2016, 08:25:30 pm »
Windows computers that are joined to the domain will not be added to the DNS.
I'm on zentyal 4.2
Just to reiterate other computers such as Android phones, SIP phones, Linux PC's and Windows PC are located inside the DNS, just not domain joined pc's.
Inside /var/log/syslog I have messages like...
samba_dlz: cancelling transaction on zone mydomain.lan
client: 192.168.10.180#51000: updated 'mydomain.lan/IN' denied

Thanks for any help

Well I have found a fix/work around. Through a lot of experimentation I have stumbled appon a fix. If I turn off a windows setting Network Properties -> IPv4 Properties -> Advanced -> DNS -> "Register this connections's address in DNS" and unselect the box. This then fixes my issues, dhcpd now registers the address inside DNS.

In my solution I have used a gpo to apply this to domain computers (the only computers I was having trouble with).
