Dynamic updates are not synced to new DC

Tutek 716 Reputation points


I just connected new domain controller DC2, the dhcp service has been left on the DC1 server, The problem is that no dynamic client updates appear in the dns of the DC2 server. When I run dcdiag there are no errors. Is it normal behavior that dynamic client updates appear only on this server where DHCP service is running, or should it be synchronized to all DC/DNS servers?

    Please run;

    Dcdiag /v /c /d /e /s:%computername% >C:\dcdiag.log (run on PDC emulator)
    repadmin /showrepl >C:\repl.txt (run on any domain controller)
    ipconfig /all > C:\%computername%.txt (run on EVERY domain controller)
    ipconfig /all > C:\problemworkstation.txt (run on problem pc)

    Also check the domain controller System and Replication (DFS or FRS) event logs for errors since last boot. Post the Event Source and Event IDs of any found. (no evtx files)

    then put unzipped text files up on OneDrive and share a link.

    What is bother me the most if on the client pc I manually edit DNS servers and leave only DC2 DNS and reboot, then logon and type echo %logonserver% then it shows DC1 - so it do not use DC2 at all!
