Thread: Cluster DNS Registration

    Cluster DNS Registration

    Not sure if this is cluster or DNS so trying here.

    We have an Exchange 2003 cluster on 2003 Server SP1 at current. We us a DR
    product called WansyncHA to replicate the exchange data to another site. One
    of the things this does though is remove the "Register this connections
    address in DNS" for the NIC TCP/IP properties, advanced, DNS. There is
    reason for this which I won't go into but the following is what I am after.

    The cluster virtual name resource for the exchange server is set to "DNS
    registration must succeed". How often does registration occur within the
    cluster if the NIC property says don't do this or does it even happen at all?
    If that setting is not enabled but I use the "Cluster . res “Network Name
    (Exchange)” /registerdns" command on a schedule is that OK? Is there a way
    to set an event so if the DNS registration fails it will show in the event
    log for both the normal cluster DNS registration as well as this scheduled
    command?

    Thanks to all!!

    i believe registration occurs when the resource is brought online. So, any
    time it moves or changes its state to online, for whatever reason, it will
    perform a registration.

    Re: Cluster DNS Registration

    I sort of thought that also. So if I disable the register this connection in
    DNS in the TCP/IP properties, advanced, DNS area for the NICs, would this
    over ride or stop the cluster name service from being able to do the
    registration? I heard now I can create a manual DNS record and disable the
    remove items that are stale option but if something tries to do a dynamic
    update to the record it re enables the scavenging.? Thanks for the help!!

    I am looking for a MS SQL failover solution, so that if any of my replicated databases goes down, the front-end would failover to another (live) database. Any suggestions?
