We noted that our DHCP server doesn’t register newly leased IP addresses in DNS. The DHCP log file shows DNS update failed. It has been happening for a long time. Please help advice.

    Thanks for posting in Q&A platform.

    Before we go further, I would like to confirm the following information with you:

    A. May I know how the DNS tag was configured in IPv4 Properties of DHCP server? Was Always dynamically update DNS records selected?

    If yes, may I know have you configured credential for DNS dynamic update on DHCP server? You can check for it on Advanced tab in IPv4 Properties.

    B. Meanwhile, was DHCP failover relationship configured?

    Best Regards,
