DCHP AND DDNS

ITEM: RS4000014808



Answer..........:                                                               
Trying to configurin dhcp in DDNS environment i need some                       
clarifications.                                                                 
In order to activate DDNS feature i inserted in /etc/dhcpsd.cnf file            
the following line:                                                             
updateDNS "/usr/sbin/dhcpaction '%s' '%s' '%s' '%s' BOTH NONIM                  
>>/tmp/upd                                                                      
ns.out 2>&1 "                                                                   
and in the named.boot file I added:                                             
primary  domain.name     /etc/db.domain.name dynamic controlled                 
primary  in-addr.arpa    /etc/db.in-addr.arpa dynamic controlled                
Then i refreshed the named and stop and start the dhcpsd.                       
Dhcp client connects itself with the assigned address, but the                  
DNS doesn't seem to receive any request for update.                             
I traced the line and I cannot see any traffic between dhcp server             
and DNS server.                                                                 
How can I get this environment working fine?                                    
Could you help me ?

P.S. Dhcp client asks for a host name, should I see this name in DNS            
tables ?

Response:                                                                      
                                                                                
        From what you have mentioned, the configuration looks valid             
for the most part.                                                              
                                                                                
        Was the DHCP server a working client using the DNS server               
before DDNS was configured? If so, verify that named was both                   
refreshed and restarted.                                                        
                                                                                
        Also, verify that you have the latest bos.net.tcp code.

Response:                                                                       
                                                                               
        From what you have mentioned, the configuration looks valid             
for the most part.                                                              
                                                                                
        Was the DHCP server a working client using the DNS server               
before DDNS was configured? If so, verify that named was both                   
refreshed and restarted.                                                        
                                                                                
        Also, verify that you have the latest bos.net.tcp code.
