Dns records not updating server 2016 r2
To make sure your reverse lookup zones and PTR resource records are configured correctly When you use third-party DNS servers to support Active Directory, you can verify the registration of domain controller locator resource records.
If the server does not support dynamic update, you need to add these records manually.
If you use either the Configure DNS Server wizard or the Active Directory Installation wizard to install your Windows 2000 DNS server, most configuration tasks are performed automatically and you can avoid many common configuration errors, but you might still want to perform the tests in this section.
Before checking anything else, check the event log for errors.
Make sure that the authoritative name server listed in the NS record can be contacted to request queries by typing the following: server Next, query the server for any name for which it is authoritative.
If these tests are successful, the NS record points to the correct hostname, and the hostname has the correct IP address associated with it.
Can anyone tell me how to setup my DNS clients to automatically update their PTR records? I've gone through the options and everything seems to be setup correctly, there must be something I'm missing.
I can do it manually by going through the "Properties" in each client, unchecking and re-checking "Update associated pointer (PTR) record" and clicking ok in the "Forward Lookup Zones" for our domain.
Note During the following test, if you have not configured a reverse lookup zone and PTR resource record for the DNS server you are querying, you might see several time-outs. To verify that SRV resource records are registered for the domain controller The following example shows a full Nslookup session, used to verify SRV resource records that are registered for locating two domain controllers on a network.That gets them to generate a PTR in the "Reverse Lookup Zones" in the appropriate scope, however, once they change IP addresses, they do not update unless I go through the process again.As you could guess, that is quite tedious and annoying.After you have configured your reverse lookup zones and PTR resource records, manually examine them in the DNS console.A reverse lookup zone must exist for each subnet, and the parent reverse lookup zone must have a delegation to your reverse lookup zone.You do not need reverse lookup zones and PTR resource records for Active Directory to function.However, you need them if you want clients to be able to resolve FQDNs from IP addresses.After you create a forward lookup zone, you can use Nslookup to make sure it is properly configured and to test its integrity to host Active Directory.To start Nslookup, type the following Nslookup server set querytype=any Nslookup starts.Also, PTR resource records are commonly used by some applications for security purposes, to verify the identity of the client.You do not need to have the reverse lookup zones and PTR resource records on your own servers; instead, another DNS server can contain these zones.
