Hi All,

 

Right now im on trial migrating DNS from microsoft AD to Infoblox. I already import the _ (underscore) record to infoblox, i already tried to join domain the domain. the problem is when i try to ping the client laptop using name, it's failed, but when i tried to ping using the clients fqdn it is success.

 

Please any advice about it, may i have missing configuration?

 

Thanks.

The fact that the ping with fqdn worked means DNS is working fine. You have a problem with the local configuration on whatever machine you used to do the ping check. If it's Windows, check the primary and connection specific DNS suffixes are correct.

CMIIW, as microsoft dns behaviour every client which join to a domain, it will create a dynamic record of that client hostname. will it be possible to do the same at Infoblox

 

Thanks

Yes, if the client is DHCP enabled, the Infoblox DHCP server will do it on behalf of the client.

 

If the client is a static then you'll need to set an ACL to allow the client to update the DNS zone, but this is not secure and I always discourage it. Having said that, if it's a static, someone or something should have allocated the IP in the first place and set the DNS name on that record already, so the client doesn't need to add it.
