USE DYNAMIC DNS TO UPDATE CLIENT HOST RECORDS
Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003 both include a featured
called Dynamic Domain Name Systems(DDNS), which enables the server
to automatically update host (A) and pointer (PTR) records for client
computers. Windows 2000 and later clients can directly request updates
of their records, while the server can update records for other clients,
such as those running Windows 98. DDNS makes it possible to maintain
accurate client host records in DNS even when those clients take their
IP addresses from DHCP.
You configure DDNS at the client side through the TCP/IP properties
for a network interface. Follow these steps:
1. Open the Network And Dial-Up Connections folder, right-click an
interface, and choose Properties.
2. Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click Properties.
3. Click Advanced on the General tab to open the Advanced TCP/IP Settings
The DNS tab contains the options that control DDNS; it's up to you
to decide which option meets your needs. The option Register This
Connection's Addresses In DSN causes the client to attempt to register
the host name specified in the Network Identification tab of the computer's
System Properties dialog box (right-click My Computer and choose Properties).
The option Use This Connection's DNS Suffix In DNS Registration causes
Windows to attempt to register the computer's connection-specific
DNS suffix, as specified on the DNS tab, with the DNS server.
