TXT Records are not registering

Hi

 

I am trying to migrate a VLAN from Windows to IB for both DNS and DHCP.  The PTR records are hosted on InfoBlox and the A-records are still on Windows along with the TX records.

Some machines register correctly in that we see the PTR record in IB and the TX and A-record in Windows.

 

Does anyone have any knowledge on why this would be happening.  I cannot see any options set at the grid or Scope level.

 

Thanks

Hello,

 

If I understand correctly, IB is authoritative DHCP and DNS for a VLAN. While IB-DHCP is providing leases to clients, their A+TXT records are registered in MS DNS and PTR in IB-DNS.

Is your requirement such that, all the DNS records be registered in IB-DNS?
Do you have an authoritive forward mapping DNS zone in IB where A+TXT records can be registered?
When you edit the network/range(scope) in question and review its DDNS settings, do you have the IB-DNS authoritative forward mapping zone configured there? 

Problem could be:
If you navigate to "Data Management-->Configure DDNS-->DNS Updates to External Zones", do you find the forward mapping zone in question and the MS DNS server IP configured there by any chance?

If you want the Infoblox DHCP server to update A and TXT records on a MS DNS server, you should configure the MS DNS server to allow unsecure + secure updates for this DNS zone.
