Adprep /rodcprep should be executed on the DC holding Domain Naming Master FSMO role not on any DC.It is not mandatory to run Adprep /rodcprep in existing windows 2000 or 2003 AD environment until you plan to deploy RODC may be now or in future.When a new client gets an IP address, DHCP doesn't update DNS with the record. The DHCP and DNS are on the same box (which is also the primary DC).I have checked the event viewer logs for the DHCP and DNS server but nothing is present? The local clients should use the RODC for their DNS queries. Hot Scripts offers tens of thousands of scripts you can use. d Bforums offers community insight on everything from ASP to Oracle, and get the latest news from Data Center Knowledge.In the event the client needs to write a record, such as during a DHCP lease, the client will be redirected to a writable DNS server for the write operation.
In the data center, we had to make an IP address change on a particular server.Also, the more experience you have, the more likely you are to make your DNS infrastructure complex, inviting the attention of Mr.Murphy and other elements of chaotic cosmic calamity. Each network interface has a set of TCP/IP settings that lists the DNS servers used by that interface.A Read-Only Domain Controller (RODC) is a new type of domain controller in Windows Server 2008.Its main purpose is to improve security in office branches.I liken it to the days when automobiles had carburetors; a mechanic could fix most engine performance problems by fiddling with the choke—spritz a little WD-40 into the throttle body, charge and retire in the suburbs after a few years. Check the TCP/IP settings, run a few utilities to verify the zone records, charge 0 (correcting for inflation) and retire to Arizona.
