Dns clients not updating records
I cannot find a way to get Mac clients to also do this, and without it there is no way, short of manual entry, to access the clients by name. Thanks, Tim Hi Tim, here are some seemingly random thoughts.
(Watch for a post from Peebles who knows his stuff inside and out) 1) Look at configuring SMB/CIFS in Directory Access on the mac.
getting it to work when you use airport is a different story. Setup: Mac clients on a Windows server network, with Windows DNS server and DHCP server.
Hi Tim -- This has been plaguing us as well; have you made any progress? Problem: Mac clients obtain DHCP IP addresses correctly, but the DNS zone is not updated with the names of the Mac client.
It's mentioned so little on these forums it makes me feel as though we have something horribly misconfigured. This makes Mac client access by name difficult/impossible.
I will forward your tips to our system administrators and hope they NOW are able to solve our problem... Kind regards, Tobias Olofsson ONLY if you don't use "Update Credentials" (a regulary user account with non-expiring password).
Update Credentials are set to the same account on all (competing) DHCP servers so that the secure updates will not conflict.
