Windows 2016 dns records not updating
If they are in the forward zone but not the reverse, then something else is going on...
3) If the issue is that your reverse zones are mismatched between domain controllers (meaning a host was able to register with one of the DCs, but the registration did not get replicated to the others) it could mean the zones themselves aren't replicating between domain controllers.
I guess that the forward lookup records are created by the host, but the reverse records are created by the DHCP server? Make sure the reverse zone is AD-Integrated and also check the Zone Transfers tab and make sure they are allowed (generally Only to servers listed on the Name Servers tab).Also make sure your DNS server are listed on the Name Servers tab. Ok so given that your DHCP server is not registering the records on behalf of the clients, and aside from your windows clients not being set to register with DNS on their NICs (which you should verify in TCP/IP properties on the client NIC), I would check the security settings on your reverse zone to make sure clients are allowed to register in the reverse zone.The other computers get no group policies, so you can forget about any carefully-orchestrated centralized management scheme. Imagine what would happen if you asked your users to type Fully Qualified Domain Names (FQDNs) rather than simple flat names to connect to internal servers. Users are willing to type com to buy a used wristwatch, but they don’t want to type \w2k3s102school.edu\ freshman_zclass to map a drive. The domain to which the desktop or server belongs has a DNS name as well as a flat name.DNS servers, however, stubbornly insist that every query specify a target domain. You can see this suffix in the Properties of the local system (Figure 1).
