I just checked our setup since it uses Windows DNS also. It looks like our main domain is set to secure updates only, and i can't add anything to that. The internal domain which is where I spin up servers allows non-secure updates. The Windows tech says that if you can join the machine to the domain, he can give it permissions, but not sure how you can do that from the IBM i. I have some of my linux boxes joined, but I use special software for that.

Where do you set that on a Windows based DNS?

Is the IP address you are coming from authorized to do updates on the

target DNS server? That is part of the security within bind.

Ok, how do I get "authorized"? I didn't see a userid/password keyword.

I am trying this:


server gdsdns.dekko-1

zone corp.dekko.com

update add testdns.corp.dekko.com 86400 A


> > > > update failed: NOTAUTH



I assume that it has something to do with generating a keyfile but I have no clue on how to go about doing that.
