Ms dns not updating

But after some period of time without refresh/update, that record will turn into a stale record.Usually this happens if the owner disconnect from the network for some time or the owner is using different name.The answer is the owner of the record that performs renewal process.By default, record owner is the same the machine that uses the name and IP address combination in the record.This behavior applies to all the latest Windows version (such as Windows 7/8/10, Windows Server 2008/2012, and above) with a static IP address.Windows machine with static IP address will register their own A and PTR record to the DNS server.

Now that we know who is performing the renewal of a record, we can dive deeper into the renewal process itself.We've been having an issue for a while now where clients are not updating their DNS records, despite automatic updates in DHCP being turned on.The first I hear of it usually is people moaning they can't get on Youtube, since the filter doesn't know what the computer is and thus who is logged in.Refresh and update process are there to ensure the dynamic records remain current.If refresh/update no longer happens to a record, then it may age and turns into stale record.
