If you don’t have that I suggest that you first read my two other posts on how to install them: Setting up a DNS for the local network on the Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) server Setting up a DHCP server on Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) server Step by step instructions Apparently the Ubuntu server is installed with an App Armor profile that prevents bind to write to the /etc/bind directory.The default profile suggests that these files should be put in /var/lib/bind.With the help of DNS integration with the DHCP, you can simplify this task and can remarkably reduce the administrative overhead.Just like other DHCP administration configurations, even this one requires that you should use the Enterprise Admin or Domain Admin account credentials to make the changes.In this chapter, you'll learn how to implement a DHCP server, including the installation process, authorization of the server, and the configuration of DHCP scopes.The chapter ends by looking at how to manage a DHCP server and monitor its performance.We have multiple hosts as of late that sucessfully pull a DHCP address and are domain machines that there is no A record being created for the host.
This means that all computers on a Windows 2000 network require a unique IP address to communicate with the Active Directory.
I’ve included the whole contents of my file here and marked the changes that I’ve made in bold.
3.1 Edit /etc/bind/local: # # Make sure to change the ddns update style to interim: ddns-update-style interim; ignore client-updates; # Overwrite client configured FQHNs ddns-domainname ""; ddns-rev-domainname ""; # option definitions common to all supported networks... subnet 192.168.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 The configuration files now contains our secret key. We also have to give the DHCP-server the permission to read and write it’s own file.
These can be added to DNS and will always be available. But, I need a pool for a set of virtual hosts that are being configured. config files, but my DHCP/DNS provides the IP addresses as the vhosts are launched or retired.
Even simpler is to use fixed IP addresses for the virtual machines.
If you have followed the steps in my previous post you might have your zone database files in /etc/bind/zones.
