Now we have a big DNS server. Dynamic updates are also enabled.
So let’s move on to how to dynamically update Host (A) and Pointer PTR Resource Record files from client computers to a large DNS server.
The command to use a client to dynamically update the host (A) and Pointer PTR Resource Record file from a large DNS server is to perform a dynamic update with the ipconfig / registerdns command. In order to receive dynamic updates from such a large Dynamic DNS server, your client computer must have a full DNS name. Therefore, in order to have the full DNS Name of your computer
Right Click on My Computer> Properties. Then go to the Computer Name Tab.
Click the Change Button in the Computer Name tab.
Then click the More Button again. There you will find a DNS entry field for the Computer Name, Primary DNS Suffix of this Computer.
Type yourzonename.com there. Then OK
Keep clicking You need to restart your computer. Restart. Restarted
Once the computer has booted Windows, type ipconfig / registerdns from the Command Prompt. If so, Host DNS and Pointer PTR of Client Computer from your DNS Server
The Resource Record File will be dynamically updated.
Now I’m done with my step by step DNS installation.
So let me stop here….
