Note that everything in this section is true whether you are using DHCPv4 or DHCPv6. To make it work, you have to declare a key and zone as in the DHCP server (see dhcpd.conf(5) for details).You also need to configure the fqdn option on the client, as follows: send “grosse.”; send fqdn.encoded on; send fqdn.server-update off; also request fqdn, dhcp6.fqdn; The option MUST be a fully-qualified domain name.In the case you are still in the camp of I need a solution to dynamically update my DNS server because my computer uses dynamic IPs then keep reading.Ns Update is a utility used to update DNS servers by passing them instructions.Then enter the credentials in the property tab of the DHCP server.
The fix is easy: you just need to create a DHCP Service Account add it to the DNS Update Proxy group.
() But if you are in the market for a solution that say…
works on Windows Azure which does not allow you to get your own DHCP server then you need another option.
You can leverage this in a script to update your Windows DNS server but it involves having an unsecure DNS zone and some scripting.
This works in my scenario as my client computers are all in a virtual network inside Windows Azure so I hope nobody decides messing with my DNS records.
