Xp clients not updating dns via dhcp

The DNS suffix name is in there, the DNS and DHCP services are also all started and running on each client.

It then acts like a teenager who can’t get the car keys, growing sullen and exhibiting a variety of bad behaviors. Let’s say you’re a VAR with a customer you plan to upgrade from NT 4.0 to Windows 2000 Server or Windows Server 2003.

The desktops use DHCP with a scope option that includes the IP addresses of two DNS servers managed by the customer’s broadband provider.

If you don’t have that I suggest that you first read my two other posts on how to install them: Setting up a DNS for the local network on the Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) server Setting up a DHCP server on Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) server Step by step instructions Apparently the Ubuntu server is installed with an App Armor profile that prevents bind to write to the /etc/bind directory.

The default profile suggests that these files should be put in /var/lib/bind.

The servers use static mappings to the same external DNS servers.

During the PDC upgrade, you install DNS because DCPromo tells you to.You also forget to reconfigure the DHCP scope options so the clients still point at the ISP’s DNS server instead of the new DC. The DC doesn’t register SRV records in the new DNS zone and the clients wouldn’t be able to find them, even if it did. Read the rest of the column for suggestions about resolving Internet names. It accepts the flat name from the user then appends a suffix to form a FQDN it can send to a DNS server.The member computers don’t know that the domain has been upgraded to AD unless they just happen to authenticate at the PDC. Users treat additional keystrokes as if they were penalties visited upon them by uncaring IT bureaucrats. The resolver obtains this DNS suffix from one of several places.You let DCPromo configure a zone file that matches the DNS name you selected for AD. Once you enter the correct DNS entries in TCP/IP settings at the DC, populate the zone with SRV records by stopping and starting the Netlogon service.You’re so pleased with the ease of the upgrade that you forget to reconfigure the TCP/IP settings of the newly upgraded DC to point at itself for DNS. (If you’ve installed the Support Tools, you can run Netdiag /fix.) Now change the DHCP scope option to point clients at the new DC for DNS, then chase down any statically mapped servers and desktops and correct their DNS entries.Also, the more experience you have, the more likely you are to make your DNS infrastructure complex, inviting the attention of Mr.
