Windows DHCP clients in the domain which have reservations properly update DNS.
I installed Office 2016 on Mac back in September, but I have not been able to update the suite since.
Not a big deal, considering I have what needed to do with the suite.
Ms dns not updating
ddns-updates on; ddns-update-style standard; update-conflict-detection false; allow client-updates; ddns-domainname "local.domain.com"; ddns-rev-domainname ""; update-static-leases true; default-lease-time 7200; max-lease-time 7200; authoritative; [...] Whenever a client gets a new IP from the DHCP, the DNS registration works perfectly.
However, these "dynamic" DNS records expire after some time (a few weeks)...
How can the DHCP be configured to refresh the DNS records after a given time interval?
We have a set of Windows 2012R2 domain controllers which provide DNS and DHCP service for the network.
What ultimately forced me to try and resolve the problem was that I wanted to get the new feature updates, such as the new Full-Screen view in Outlook 2016, reliability and performance upgrades.
To download the latest updates for Office 2016, I needed to have Auto Update version 3.4 installed.Checking for Updates from the Help menu was not working.I have an Ubuntu 14.04 server which is getting addresses via DHCP. In the Windows DHCP server, I have converted the lease to a reservation.In the DHCP server interface, I can see that the hostname of the client is properly being displayed, so I know the client is properly sending the hostname back.However, the DNS servers do not seem to be able to resolve the address.Probing the DNS servers via dig returns no records for the hostname.
