I am currently testing Infoblox to manage an IPv6 envirnment and I came accress 2 problems I can't seem to solve.

 

Background information:

 

My infoblox is authorative for the zone test.local

DHCP is working, AAAA records are automatically created in my test.local zone.

Client receives the IPv6 address of my DNS server (Which is the infoblox.)

 

1) DNS suffix does not show on client

In the GRID DHCP properties, under tab IPv6 DHCP Options, I have:

domain name: test.local

Custom IPv6 DHCP Options dhcp6.fqdn (39)s : test.local

 

2) PTR records are not created automatically

 

My AAAA record is automatically created, but under the reverse lookup zone, I do not see a PTR record.

Is there somewhere a setting I have to enable for automatically creation of PTR records?

(I did found an option to remove the corresponding PTR when deleting a AAAA record, but no option to automatically create a PTR record.)

 

Some tips would be appreciated!

Update:

 

I was able to solve problem 1.

 

Solution:

 

In the GRID DHCP properties, under tab IPv6 DHCP Options, you need to have:

domain name: test.local

 

TO GIVE DNS SUFFIX:

 

Custom IPv6 DHCP Options domain search (24)s : "test.local"

 

IMPORTANT

The dns suffix has to be between "".

(So you actually have to type them.)
