dhcp&dns relation in active directory

Answer Wiki

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

DHCP is what issues dynamic IP addresses to computers and other devices on the network.
DNS is what computers and other devices on the network use to find each others IP address. DNS is also used to find the domain controllers as well as other key services on the network.

————————————–

At least one DNS server must exist on the network in order to make active directory work. At the other hand, DHCP is not really necesssary.

At first sight, one could say that DHCP has no direct relation to DNS, but DHCP can also be configured to dynamically collaborate with DNS to provide secure dynamic updates for A and PTR records in DNS.

    AD integrated DNS also provides records to find various services. DNS records like _srv permit a client to find kerberos authentication services. There are several different DNS records that start with the "_" character. These are held in the _MDCS zone in AD DNS. There are third party DNS services that can also provide these capabilities. Infoblox is one.
