DDNS (Dynamic DNS) question

Is DDNS really necessary for Unity installation in WIN2K? Why does it have to be dynamic. If you properly maintain your DNS servers, won't adding the Unity Server(s) to the zone be sufficient?

Thanks, Stephanie

I don't think it would be sufficient. There's more to DNS in an Active Directory network than just zones and cname records for host-name to IP address resolution. AD uses DDNS to store numerous records of AD related objects (domains, DCs and GCs are some of those most important objects).

DCs and GCs can use DDNS to automatically enter in their SRV records.

If the DNS server has the appropriate records for everything AD needs, then it'll work. If not, AD won't work and neither will Unity.
