ddns and dhcpd


We have a customer with 5000+ dhcp clients. How can I make dhcp and ddns assign the requesting dhcp client a hostname of the IP address it was assigned?

For example:

A client requests an ip address from the server and is assigned 172.26.1.2.

I want dns to give the client the hostname of 172.26.1.2
