I am curious as to why I am seeing the following in my log file:
Apr 18 09:39:55 Server named: denied update from [192.168.1.1].1026 for
Apr 18 09:46:27 Server dhcpd: if IN A TBird1234.Ourdomain doesn't exist add
10800 IN A TBird1234.Ourdomain 192.168.1.27: resolver failed.
Server is, well, the server running dhcp and named at IPA 192.168.1.1
TBird1234 is a dhcp client. I am still converting from static IP to dynamic
IP and TBird1234 is the only system on the wired network using dhcp. It is a
Win98SE system that has no trouble connecting to other machines or the
TBird1234 is *not* in /etc/hosts and is not specifically listed in any of
the zone files. Nor is it assigned a fixed address in /etc/dhcpd.conf.
Apparently something isn't configured correctly because when I telnet from
TBird1234 to the server, it shows up as 192.168.1.27, not TBird1234. I had
assumed that dhcpd would take care of the host/ip tracking, but apparently
not. All the relevant information does go into the leases file, but I assume
something is misconfigured because when I attempt to ping TBird1234 from the
server it comes back with "Unknown host name" and that's not quite what I
I'm wondering if the "denied update" messages I see (for both the server and
TBird1234) are related to this.
