STABLE Environment: Windows 2008r2 DHCP server with DNS dynamic update enabled.The specific Windows Server setting reads as follows “Dynamically update DNS A and PTR records only if requested by the DHCP clients”.It also updates my /etc/file each time my laptop connects to different network. This protocol reduces system administration workload, allowing devices to be added to the network with little or no manual configuration. The syntax is: option (attribute) write protects /etc/file on Linux so that no one can modify it including root user.
On our Linux clients the file contains the line “send host-name = gethostname();”.The DHCP client network configuration script is invoked from time to time by dhclient.This script is used by the dhcp client to set each interface’s initial configuration prior to requesting an address, to test the address once it has been offered, and to set the interface’s final configuration once a lease has been acquired.By commenting out this line and restarting the client, the client can then register with this type of DHCP server.However, this is needed to ensure dhcpv6 send host-name = gethostname(); send = gethostname(); So, the problem appears to be that Windows gets confused when both fields are set, sadly, not setting will make dhcpv6 fail miserably, so unless there's an easy to have only be set when doing dhcpv6, I still prefer breaking DNS for some Windows DHCP than breaking for 100% of the dhcpv6 [email protected] Ok.
This change simply reverts to the pre-12.10 situation.
