The DHCP lease obviously does have both the IP and the hostname, so I'm puzzled as to why it is not updating the DNS. The DNS properties has secure and non-secure set for DNS updates.
Get more info about an IP address or domain name, such as organization, abuse contacts and geolocation. Not sure where to find the user privileges settings, but I believe those are set to the system administrator. If DHCP is set up update DNS, what would privileges be needed for?
Is this just a "bug" in SBS2008 whereby Microscoft simply doesn't like supporting non-Microsoft systems, or am I doing something fundamentally wrong?
Please see this: and this: Sorry for the delay - this question fell off my radar.
The version is question is Slackware distro 13.37.0, kernel 184.108.40.206.
Interestingly, I have another host with the most recent version: Slackware distro 14.1, kernel Linux 3.10.17.
Before my box would get an ip address, but there was no name on the DHCP server.
How do I get a linux client to register with my Windows DNS server?
I'm new to Linux, and have beaten my head in figuring out how to get Samba working, and finally have, and now I can't seem to figure out how to get a linux client to update it's DNS to a windows DNS server.
The linux Client isn't set by default to request a name.
This causes the Windows server not to register the box in DHCP and DNS.
