DHCP Server DNS Registration

Updated: December 11, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

You can configure the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) Server service to impersonate an account to perform Domain Name service (DNS) registrations and secure dynamic updates. The Netsh.exe tool can be used to configure the impersonation credentials. You must create a dedicated user account in Active Directory Domain Services before you use the Netsh.exe tool to configure the use of impersonation credentials.

Events

1055

Microsoft-Windows-DHCP-Server

The DHCP service was unable to impersonate the credentials necessary for DNS registrations:
%1. The local system credentials are being used.

1056

Microsoft-Windows-DHCP-Server

The DHCP service has detected that it is running on a DC and has no credentials configured for use with Dynamic DNS registrations initiated by the DHCP service. This is not a recommended security configuration. Credentials for Dynamic DNS registrations may be configured using the command line "netsh dhcp server set dnscredentials" or via the DHCP Administrative tool.
