Thread: [Samba] Can Samba send DNS updates?

  1. [Samba] Can Samba send DNS updates?

    I have a static IP debian Linux host successfully participating on a
    Windows 2003 forest and joined to their Win2003 domain.

    I'd like to have my Samba client update their Windows DNS during Samba
    startup/shutdown like a typical Windows pc would do... Is this possible
    and what is the magic tweak?

    If it has a static address, why not create static DNS entries? I think
    normally DNS updates are done by the DHCP software so unless you are
    assigning your static addresses via DHCP I don't think it will work.

    First off, ensure Samba is built with the "--with-dnsupdate" configure
    option.

    If all is well, joining an AD domain (with "net ads join") or doing a
    "net ads dns register" should both cause a DNS update.

    Cheers, Dave

    Doesn't this depend on your DNS server, or are we talking about Samba
    being a member of an AD forest?

    Yes, I was assuming the Windows 2k3 AD domain controller was also acting
    as DNS server.
