Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2
To configure DNS dynamic update credentials
In the console tree, click the applicable DHCP server.
DHCP/applicable DHCP server
- DHCP/applicable DHCP server
On the Action menu, click Properties.
In Server Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Credentials.
The DNS dynamic update credentials dialog box appears.
In DNS dynamic update credentials, type the information required to provide credentials that will determine DNS record ownership, and then click OK.
To open DHCP, click Start, click Settings, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click DHCP.
If the supplied credentials belong to an object (such as a computer) that is a member of the DnsUpdateProxy security group, the next object to register the same name record in DNS will become the record owner.
If you specified the credentials (user name, domain, and password) that the DHCP server uses when registering DHCP client computers in DNS, these credentials are not backed up with either synchronous or asynchronous backup. After a DHCP database is restored, new credentials must be configured.
Information about functional differences
Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
