Hi OK, I have checked the DNS / DHCP server and a laptop I have here is not in the record list. Are your DNS servers present in the Name servers tab under the property for the zone ?
I have run IPCONFIG /REGISTERDNS which has started but it is not updating the records in the reverse zone.
However should this be ticked, because if it is ticked it is the client updating the records, where by if it is not ticked would it not be the server that does the update and then manage the connections? Correct , but if the DNS server has some default refresh intervals : DHCP Clients : 24 hours The DHCP Client service sends dynamic updates for the DNS records.
I think I had trouble with DNS in the past when installing with AD, should perhaps it be installed BEFORE installing AD?
I have DHCP set to "Enable DNS dynamic updates" but still no updating of PTR records is happening. In reverse lookup zone,subnet zone is not created automatically, it has to be created manually.
This can have adverse affects with regards to the proper running of your network.
Second, if your server goes down I would assume that your users inability to get to the internet would be the least of your worries, especially since this is a Domain Controller.

Dynamically update DNS A and PTR records for DHCP clients that do not request updates Hope this helps!In the Microsoft DNS manager Reverse Lookup Zones, we found a "Dynamic Updates" configured to "Secure Only", causing the non-Microsoft DHCP server fail to update the (ptr) record.May I know what are the impacts if we set the Dynamic Updates to "Nonsecure and secure"?The solution provided below is a suggested solution to automate the process using a Power Shell startup script in Active Directory Group Policy (GPO) Power Shell v3.0 is required for the script to complete work on Win2008R2.I also attached a VBScript version for those who would rather use VBScript then update all the Win2008R2 systems to Power Shell V3.As article applies to windows 2003,hotfix is not applicable but reg setting can be done on windows 2008 R2 to resolve the issue. scid=kb; EN-US;837061 Do you have the following set: Enabled DNS dynamic updates according to the settings below: [X] Always dynamically update DNS A and PTR records [X] Discard A and PTR records when lease is deleted [X] Dynamically updates DNS A and PTR records for DHCP clients that do not request updates... You will see one recored called "Chair1.domain.local". In the DHCP console when you connect to your DHCP server on the bottom of the scope list you should have a folder called "server options" click on that and you should see your server options listed.
