Click Next Step 4: In domain controller options window, leave Windows Server 2012 R2 as the default selection in forest and domain functional level.
This was not an issue when I first built the server so I'm not sure why it is now.
I have dynamic updates enabled inside DHCP with the option set to always update discard when lease is finished and dynamically update even if clients don't ask.
Hopefully in the next couple days it will begin to populate Do you have name protection enabled?
I'm working through an issue currently where certain records will not update, to the point where had I not disabled scavenging I would have lost a bunch of printers etc.
I have opened up a support case with Microsoft on August 17th. So far they've enabled all auditing and logging functions and the problem happened again - it was not shown at all what deleted the DNS record even with maximum logging turned on.
Tomorrow they want me to wipe out the entire DNS zone and start over from scratch :(I wonder if our problems are the same and due to some bug in 2012 R2 DNS and/or DHCP.
Additionally if you have a DHCP 2012 failover environment and credentials are not configured for those devices which do not have their own account in AD, each server will register those devices with it's own name as the owner of record so should the device renew it's lease on the alternate server that server will not have permission to update the record - hence I can't see a way around using credentials on both sides (and consequently scripting the setting of permission on the records already owned by the server)no, it seems the issue was that I had it set to secure updates only and for some reason none of these machines wanted to do it that way.
Microsoft themselves posted that it won't work that way you have to do secure and nonsecure so I did and it began working.
