Description Matthieu Patou 2010-07-01 03:04:24 UTC
I keep receiving errors about the windows server not able to register the SRV record: _VLMCS._TCP.domain.

Registering A and PTR record is ok, I guess this is due to the fact the updates rules authorize only a workstation to update its own A and AAAA record.

In theory we could had a rule to allow any authenticated tier to register a SRV record but it's major security threat as anyone could then register _msdcs.domain records (ie the one used for locating dcs ...).

No update on this bug as we need a more fined grain way to control ACLs on DNS updates

Hi Matthieu,

Is this still an issue? If the AD ACL model allows, windows server should be able to update that record. Can you give me more information?

I'm closing this since it seems to have been fixed. If not, please reopen, ekacnet.
