How to update Windows DDNS server by Linux DHCP server

Hi everybody,

I would like to set up a Linux DHCP server which is able to update a Windows 2003 DDNS server with the IP-address_to_hostname_mappings issued to clients by leases.
Does anybody knows if this works and has any experience in this domain

THX a lot

Look in the Samba 3 by Example ( From either the samba or samba-doc package ) book.
I think the dhcpd.conf in example 3.3.6 is configured the way you want.

default-lease-time 86400;
option ntp-servers;
option domain-name "";
option domain-name-servers,;
option netbios-name-servers,;
option netbios-node-type 8; ### Node type = Hybrid ###
ddns-updates on; ### Dynamic DNS enabled ###
ddns-update-style interim;
