Configuration

Name protection has been enabled but the DNSupdateproxy group has not been secured.

Name protection may not work without the DNSupdateproxy group being secured.

Using dnscmd, set the OpenACLOnProxyUpdates to 0 to secure the DNSupdateproxygroup.

DNS update security is available only for zones that are integrated into Active Directory. After you integrate a zone, you can use the access control list (ACL) editing features that are available in the DNS snap-in to add or to remove users or groups from the ACL for a specific zone or for a resource record.

To perform the following procedures, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local computer, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure.

  1. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

  2. Click Yes if prompted by User Account Control, type dnscmd /config /OpenAclOnProxyUpdates 0 and then press ENTER.

For updated detailed IT pro information about DHCP, see the Windows Server 2008 R2 documentation on the Microsoft TechNet Web site.
