If you don’t have that I suggest that you first read my two other posts on how to install them: Setting up a DNS for the local network on the Ubuntu Hardy Heron server Setting up a DHCP server on Ubuntu Hardy Heron Step by step instructions Apparently the Ubuntu server is installed with an App Armor profile that prevents bind to write to the /etc/bind directory.
The default profile suggests that these files should be put in /var/lib/bind.
Hi, I like to use pf Sense as a DHCP server and it works great.
Bu I have a problem with devices, that are not part of Active Directory - they do not create a DNS A record in Active Directory Server after DHCP registration. Pfsense dhcp is great if you don't have another dhcp server, your not a windows shop, etc.
I’ve included the whole contents of my file here and marked the changes that I’ve made in bold.
3.1 Edit /etc/bind/local: # # Make sure to change the ddns update style to interim: ddns-update-style interim; ignore client-updates; # Overwrite client configured FQHNs ddns-domainname ""; ddns-rev-domainname ""; # option definitions common to all supported networks... subnet .0 netmask 255.255.255.0 The dns database files are now being rewritten by the bind service.
However, as devices are connected, moved and ultimately disconnected, DNS records can begin to sprawl.
Microsoft Dynamic DNS (DDNS) is a wonderful feature.So for example I have no problems with workstations - they get IP from pf Sense and then they are registered on AD DNS Server, but printers are registered in pf Sense DNS only. But if your running AD I don't see why you would not just use your AD for both dhcp and dns..How can I make AD DNS server to know about the new hosts from DHCP? For smooth operation of AD both of these services are easier managed in AD.- An intelligent man is sometimes forced to be drunk to spend time with his fools.- If I have helped you and want to help back, https:// Please don't PM me for personal help, info you don't want public sure.Most of those environments could benefit from implementing Active Directory DNS Scavenging.For some environments, especially smaller ones where network changes are somewhat infrequent, this may not be a big deal.
