If you want more information you may find the following useful: We have multiple hosts as of late that sucessfully pull a DHCP address and are domain machines that there is no A record being created for the host.Some customers have reported issues with Microsoft Dynamic Updates after installing virtual appliances (VAs) in their environment or installing the Umbrella Roaming Client on some machines.The most commonly reported symptom is that clients cannot resolve A or PTR records for other client machines while using the VAs or the Roaming Client for DNS resolution.Statically-set clients (static clients) that perform dynamic updates will send updates for both its A record (forward lookup record) and its PTR record (reverse lookup record) to the authoritative DNS server.Clients with dynamically-set network connections (DHCP clients) will communicate with both the authoritative DNS server and the DHCP server for updating A and PTR records.Have you ticked the dox in DNS properties on the server role that is listed as "Dynamically update DNS A and PTR records for DHCP client that do not request updated (for example, clients running Windows NT 4.0)?If you are working with, well almost anything network intensive these days, like Antivirus or management tools, your Reverse DNS (r DNS) lookups need to be in good shape.

Keep in mind, for the most part it automatically works "out of the box" without much administrative overhead. The machine’s DNS entries in the NIC, must be ONLY configured to use the internal DNS servers that host the zone. Single label name zones are problematic, do not conform to the DNS RFC, and causes excessive internet traffic to the Root Servers when DNS tries to resolve a single label name query, such as querying for computername.domain – in such a query, the domain name is actually treated as a TLD.Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, Thanks.
