DHCP causing duplicate IP in DNS

Discussion in 'Windows Networking' started by Mr Major Thorburn, Sep 28, 2004.

  1. We have a restriction on the number of addresses in the
    scope for our DHCP service so we have set the length of
    time for an issued IP to 4 days. The same DHCP server is
    used for PC builds as well as "live" PCs.
    We have a problem: When a PC that has been offline for
    more than 4 days its IP is reissued to another PC.
    This means that if you ping the original PC using its DNS
    or netbios (via wins) name then you get a response even
    though the PC is still offline. The response is coming
    back from the new PC.

    Is there any way of automating the process so that when
    the DHCP server reissues an IP for a new PC the old PC's
    DNS record is deleted?

    Regards, Major.
