Windows dns ptr records not updating
There's a comment below from 7 years ago regarding BSD and Mac OSX, I'd just like to follow up incase some people see that and don't think it'll work on Mac OSX.Would like to see about getting DHCP configured on a Cisco switch to auto-register the computers hostname with a MS DNS server.Scavenging has never been turned on and it is full of stale records and it's full of computers (PCs and servers) that have time stamps several years old.Example: I have a server with a static IP of 192.168.1.10 and it is properly entered in DNS with a timestamp of 1/1/2007.The Domain Name System delegates the responsibility of assigning domain names and mapping those names to Internet resources by designating authoritative name servers for each domain.Network administrators may delegate authority over sub-domains of their allocated name space to other name servers.
I've inherited the DNS servers and they are a mess.Microsoft is conducting an online survey to understand your opinion of the Technet Web site.If you choose to participate, the online survey will be presented to you when you leave the Technet Web site. This gets all records except DNS_PTR: Please note that Firewalls and anti malware software detects (and depending on company policies even blocks) DNS_ANY requests. This is because DNS_ANY requests can be exploited for creating "amplification (D)DOS attackes": You send 1 DNS_ANY request and get a huge amount of information back, thus even small requests can result into hugh network load.I advise to use a more explicit name-request instead of using DNS_ANY.
