Quick question I can't seem to find a google
I've got a machine that gets it's IP via DHCP. Now on our network, the
DNS name is pulled off the machine and auto registered. However this
machine won't push its domain name.
Do you mean Dynamic DNS updates?
Any ideas where a) the setting for this might be b)
any manual step you
can use to update the DNS name?
I looked at the nsupdate command, but I'm not sure that's the right
nsupdate will allow you to manually generate DDNS update packets, but
generally you allow the DHCP client to do this. Are you using ISC
dhclient? I'm not sure if dhcpcd supports DDNS, and pump most likely
does not. Check /etc/dhclient.conf and its manual page for DDNS
Also, the DHCP server can control who does the update, either the DHCP
server or the DHCP client, depending on how it is configured. And, of
course, the DNS server may not allow just anyone to do updates, or may
require signed updates using TSIG or SIG0. In secure environments,
often only the DHCP server is authorized to update the DNS server.
Talking with the network guy, he recalls there being a
for Linux that would let you do this.
Never heard of this.
