how can I get updates into the dns from dhcpd when
a new machine comes on my network?
If i add a new machine, I give it a name and it gets
an address from being a dhcp client. But the dhcp server
that also runs named can't seem to add the new name
to the dns database. Quite debilitating.
In the client I have in dhclient.conf
send host-name "laddy";
So I think it's something in named.conf on the server.
( I have a server machine that does named and dhcpd ).
thanks for any help:)
