Secondary DC is currently server 2003 R2 with AD & DNS. Windows 2000 server as PDC, with AD, DNS & DHCP operating. if possible it's always worth doing to save yourself a lot of headache. On the DNS tab enable DNS dynamic updates and set to "Always dynamically update..." Also enable Dynamic Update for clients that do not request updates.1a) Even if these are enabled, you might need to make sure the DHCP server has permissions to update DNS records.If I run ipconfig /registerdns from any of the clients. There is no error any of the event logs (server or local) and the static entry in forward never updates. I noticed on each record that there is an account called Self with special permissions, yet when you drill down there are none set.If I restart the machine, it still does not update. I hate to have to delete all this suff in forward, because I am not sure which items actually need to be static.
Anyhow, came back two days later, and only a very few number of machines have updated in forward dns represenative of Timestamp value changing from Static to an actual time. First off shouldnt they be updating now if the default update time for XP is 24 hours, and I have Dynamic updating on now???

The forward DNS entries ("A" records) for windows machines on the domain are populated automatically.
However, the reverse DNS entries ("PTR" Records) are not.
