    the "Use This connections DNS suffix in DNS Registration" is checked. It only
    applies to people who are using DHCP. all static addresses are updated in the
    Reverse Lookup zone. I could enable a GPO to check those boxes. But It worked
    prior . I looked at the Scopeand server options for my DHCP and everything
    looks normal. Has this ever happened to anyone.Looking for some insight
    please. Thank you

  2. That is correct, this box must be checked if the clients depend on DHCP to
    assign the connection specific suffix. Otherwise the client will register
    using the primary DNS suffix, if it has one.

    that is where my problem lies. if the box isnt checked, which it isnt by
    default , the primary DNS suffix isnt registering. It worked prior, and even
    if I run a ipconfig /registerdns command it still doesnt register. I have
    remote sites with their own DHCP servers and those clients register in the
    reverse lookup zone. It's only in this one subnet where the DHCP clients dont
    register. Unless the use this connection check box is checked. I can not see
    any differences between DHCP servers in their configurations except the life
    of the lease. what would prevent clients registering in the Reverse lookup
    zone via their Primary DNS suffix.

    out of the 50 machines using DHCP 32 are Win XP SP2 18 are Win 2K SP4. GPO
    would only apply to the Win XP

    OK Strangest thing now. I tried changing the Dynamic updates to nonsecure and
    secure and all of the clients using DHCP are now updated. What would make my
    DNS think those nodes are nonsecure. They are all members of the domain. and
    my forward lookup is set to only allow Dynamic updates from secure computers
    and those same machines were updated there but not in the reverse lookup zone

  7. I'm guessing now, because there could be several reasons, but I suspect the
    Records on those machines were updated by the DHCP server which changes the
    owner of the record to the DHCP server (Or vice-versa) and now the clients
    can't update the record because they aren't the owner.
    Is this Win2k or Win2k3 DHCP?
    On DC or Member server?

  9. Follow KB 816592 and give DHCP an account to authenticate with.
