Managing Dynamic DNS Remotely With Powershell
For those of us with Active Directory domains, we also have Microsoft DNS servers. And most likely, we also have dynamic DNS. DDNS is a technology that eases a lot of the burden of keeping DNS records current. By default, all Windows computers are set to create a DNS A record for themselves automatically and keep it up to date if their IP addresses change. This significantly reduces the labor of keeping thousands of DNS records current.
Dynamic DNS consists of two different components: the client component and the server component. Each piece must talk with the other in order to ensure the server takes care of the client that requested the change. Although DDNS typically requires little intervention, there are times when it becomes necessary to intervene.
