Assume the following setup:

Subnet: 192.168.1.0 with Mask: 255.255.255.0

Range: 192.168.1.10-192.168.1.50

Domain Name: noname.com

Domain Server: 192.168.1.1

DHCP SETUP

The following instructions are for DHCP. Please see OES documentation for details:

  1. Create a service
  2. Create a DHCP Server object with the following two settings:
    1. ddns-rev-domainname in-addr.arpa
    2. ddns-update-style interim
  3. Create the following two zone objects:
    1. Zone Name: noname.com with DNS Server IP address of 192.168.1.1
    2. Zone Name: 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa with DNS Server IP address of 192.168.1.1
      • NOTE: The zone names created here must match the zones names as they are found under DNS
  4. Create a subnet with the following settings:
    • Subnet IP Address: 192.168.1.0
    • Mask: 255.255.255.0
  5. View/Modify the newly created subnet and add noname.com for DNS Zone for Dynamic Update
  6. Create a Pool with the range specified at the beginning: Start of 192.168.1.10 and end of 192.168.1.50
  7. View/Modify the newly create Pool and change DNS Update to Always Update

DHCP configuration is complete.

DNS SETUP

The following instructions are for DNS. Please see the OES documentation for details:

  1. Create the following two DNS zones:
    1. noname.com
    2. An in-addr.arpa zone similar to this: 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa zone (Type in the address normally in the boxes (192.168.1) leaving the last box blank. The application will complete the process to give you a 1.168.192.in-addr.arpa zone).
  2. On each zone select the Control Lists tab and in the ALLOW UPDATE option. Add an entry of “any” in the filter (default is blank)

DNS Configuration is complete.

Test DDNS:

  1. Start named (rcnovell-named start)
  2. Start dhcp (rcdhcpd start)
  3. Release and renew dhcp leases from the workstation

If the setup is not working, check the following files:

  • /var/log/messages for error messages
  • /var/lib/dhcp/db/dhcpd.leases. Along with the lease information you should see:
    • For a PTR record: set ddns-rev-name=”10.1.168.192.in-addr.arpa”
    • For an A record: set ddns-fwd-name=”workstation.noname.com”

Resolved – Advisory: Sophos DDNS Service

We are currently in the process of migrating the Sophos DDNS service to a more robust and scalable infrastructure but in the interim, we are aware there are issues related to service accessibility and reliability. If you are experiencing issues or have mission critical applications dependent on DDNS, in the interim, we recommend that you consider a third-party DDNS provider.

Intermittent communication issues may be observed for systems that use the Sophos Dynamic DNS service. Changes to the IP of the XG may not be updated for the Dynamic DNS entry. In addition, adding a new host may take several attempts before a successful registration.

The new infrastructure has been migrated and all zones are now working off of this new platform. No further updates since this issue is considered resolved.

If you’ve spotted an error or would like to provide feedback on this article, please use the section below to rate and comment on the article.

This is invaluable to us to ensure that we continually strive to give our customers the best information possible.
