DNS not populating when using DHCP server on PAN

L0 Member

We are using the PAN's DHCP server for some of our sites and for some reason its only pushing static entries to our Windows DNS. We need host names to resolve for all IPs at these sites. Was wondering if there is something we need to do on either side to get DNS to populate properly.

Hello @BC_Sys 

A firewall configured to act as a DHCP server will lease the IP addresses to the client, and I understand that it is working as expected in your case.

Reporting these IP mappings to the DNS server is not within the firewall's scope of responsibility.

These links may be helpful, please check with the relevant vendor.
