    Hi. I have the following environment: single domain, Server 2003/2008 active
    directory, unsecured dynamic updates, with 120 users, 3 sites with 1 DC in
    each. How can I get non domain clients to register forward and reverse lookup
    records via DHCP in DNS? At this point, the Reverse (pointer) registers the
    FQDN, but no forward record registers. Tia

  2. All you have to do is go into DHCP server's properties, and check the radio
    button to Register all clients, whether they can or not.

    In addition, I would suggest to configure credentials to use for DHCP so it
    can update records it has registered, otherwise it can't. I also suggest to
    configure scavenging to clean up old, stale records. Read my blog in the
    following link for more information,how to do it, and why.

    Try this setting:

    Unchecking "Register this connection's addresses in DNS" in the DNS tab of
    Advanced TCP/IP settings makes things go a lot faster
    for computers not joined to the domain.

    That setting makes dhcp do all of the registrations instead of the client.
    Make sure that you are using option 15 in DHCP.
