Ok, how do I get "authorized"? I didn't see a userid/password keyword.
I assume that it has something to do with generating a keyfile but I have no clue on how to go about doing that.

nsupdate authorizes via Key File, as Larry pointed out. Generating is described in a multitude of locations, but I'm not sure if this is a BIND proprietary extension.

Generally in Windows, for any zone you can define how to dynamically update the zone. None, secure and secure + insecure. Maybe if you try to set that to insecure as a workaround until a better solution is found, can help? So you can use rndc without keys and other auth methods.


It seems that secure updates are only possible with integration of the OS as Domain Member:


I'm sure tat IBM i doesn't has this feature.

What would I do? I'd ask the tech guys to install an ssh server on windows and log in to there with proper keys to call dnscmd directly over this session.

ssh Administrator@Servername "dnscmd record add blah"

So no need to do anything fancy with nsupdate or a local dnscmd (which doesn't help because here too, Authentication will fail).

:wq! PoC
