 On 2.5.1, IF you have installed all the BIND/resolver patches, your
 /sbin/in.named will be at level 4.9.3p1.
  But YOU have to create the boot file and any zone files that
  you will be primary for. There is excellent lierature available
  for those new to DNS. Let me know if you need any pointers
  to it.
 When solaris starts, it checks for the existence of in.named AND
 named.boot. If both are found, it will start the named process
 for you. -Pat

You'll need to create /etc/named.boot, /etc/resolv.conf (if you haven't
already), and of course your database files (named.db, named.rev, etc).
They don't come with the system because almost everyone's will be
different.  No real default files.

1. Dynamic DNS not working with Solaris DHCP/DNS server and win clients

I've got a solaris 9 04/04 box set up with the bundled DNS and DHCP servers but I can't seem to get windows XP clients to dynamicaly register their names in DNS. DHCP seems to work just fine.

I've followed the rather simple doco at http://docs.sun.com/db/doc/806-5529/6jehkcs59?a=view however it still does not work.
This doco covers adding the allow-update directive to the named.conf file, which I've done for local and loop back IPs and then ticking the "Update DNS host information upon client request" check box in DHCP configuration.

When I configure a DHCP domain from scratch and it comes to the section on where to store host names, I choose DNS, I get a popup that says "Unable to manage defined hosts table". I've gone back to "none" then later ticked Edit -> Modify: "Update DNS host information upon client request"....still no updates.

There is nothing loged in the DHCP logs relevant to dns problems.

My named.conf file is:
bash-2.05# cat /etc/named.conf
options {
        directory "/etc/named";
        pid-file "/var/run/named.pid";
        forwarders {
                <dns 1>;
                <dns 2>;
                <dns 3>;
                };
        forward first;
        };

zone "." {
        type hint;
        file "/etc/named/db.cache";
        };

zone "pjama.loc" {
        type master;
        file "/etc/named/<my domain>.hosts";
        allow-update {
                127.0.0.1;
                192.168.200.1;
                192.168.200.11;
                };
        };

zone "200.168.192.in-addr.arpa" {
        type master;
        allow-update {
                127.0.0.1;
                192.168.200.1;
                192.168.200.11;
                };
        file "/etc/named/192.168.200.rev";
        };

logging {
        category default {
                default_syslog;
                default_debug;
                default_stderr;
                };
        };
bash-2.05

Any assistance appreciated.

Cheers
Peter Arnold
