Xp clients not updating dns via dhcp
First, let’s understand DHCP client behavior when DHCP server is not available.To understand well, we will observe the etl trace taken on a DHCP client. Etl tracing is saved as the following files: %windir%\system32\logfiles\WMI\dhcpcsvc.etl, dhcpcsvc6and The DHCP tags that are used are: 003 router 006 DNS Servers 015 DNS Domain name WTOS version is 6.5.0_30 Any suggestions?Cheers Gregg WTOS clients will not create a DNS entry.DEBUG_PROTOCOL 0430.0910::10/14/2008-.304 (Send Dhcp Message:dhcpmsg_c268)Sent message to 255.255.255.255: DEBUG_PROTOCOL 0430.0910::10/14/2008-.304 (Obtain Initial Parameters:protocol_c2204)Sent Dhcp Discover Message.DEBUG_TRACE 0430.0910::10/14/2008-.304 (Obtain Initial Parameters:protocol_c2212)Waiting : 7 seconds DEBUG_PROTOCOL 0430.0910::10/14/2008-.184 (Obtain Initial Parameters:protocol_c2222)Dhcp offer receive Timeout.Two options: – Let the DHCP server do the registration for you – If you have WINS server running you can enable WINS registration on the clients and let WINS do the registration in DNS for you.CG Problem solved, right clicked on the DHCP server selected Properties.

When Servers register via DDNS only an A record is created.
Does anyone know of a way to either automate conversion of these A records to Host Records or know how to make servers create a Host record instead of an A record?
The Wyse terminals work and connect up ok, but we can not ping them using the DHCP address given and more importantly we can not connect via VNC for support purposes.
Am not using the 161/162 tags at the moment for ftp.

A DHCP infrastructure consists of the following elements: When a Client, configured with the TCP/IP setting “Obtain an IP address automatically”, plugs into a network, it sends out a broadcast from UDP port 68 to UDP port 67 to “DISCOVER” a DHCP Server (or relay agent).
