This can get complicated so if you suspect this is the case, we advise checking out this blog post entitled How to Fix Dynamic DNS Record Permissions Automagically. Temporarily enable DNS debug logging on your DNS server Enabling debug logging on your DNS server allows the server to begin generating a debug log of all dynamic update activity. We have a Power Shell script to ease the pain by displaying the content in a more user-friendly format.

Feel free to refer to this blog post for more information on the script and how to use it.

If it's started, ensure there's no events in the computer's System event log that indicate a problem. Check the advanced DNS client NIC setting The "Register this connection's addresses in DNS" should be on by default, but we've seen instances where it's disabled through some kind of policy.

This must be checked for the DDNS process to proceed.

If the client isn't sending the update, it's not getting to the server so server troubleshooting will be useless.

Likewise, if the server is receiving the update but the record is still not getting updated then it might be a dns Node object permission problem. If you need help, this Technet article is a great resource we'd recommend for understanding the entire workflow from client to server.

Microsoft Dynamic DNS (DDNS) is a wonderful feature.

Combined with Active Directory (AD) it makes managing thousands of DNS records for clients and servers a breeze.

This happens even though DHCP registered the record.
