DNS Automatic Host Update/Creation


I am running 3 clustered Linux Oes2Sp2 Servers (Dhcp, Nss and iPrint anre clustered).
Each of these 3 servers holds a non-clustered DNS service.

What I would like to know :

Previously (under Netware platform) when I used to create a DHCP reservation a corresponding DNS record was automaticaly created under the right DNS zone.

Now I am running Linux Oes2Sp2 behavior appear not to be the same.

Or may be I miss configured something.

Is it possible to do so ?

Re: DNS Automatic Host Update/Creation

Yes, this is possible. It is referred to as Dynamic DNS (DDNS). Here are a couple of TIDs that will help you out (found at support.novell.com)
1. How to setup Dynamic DNS (DDNS) on OES 2 SP2 Server: 3372644
2. Dynamic DNS (DDNS) fails to work after migrating from NetWare to OES Linux: 7003923 <--If you migrated from NetWare, you may have to follow this. If this is a new setup, then this wont apply
