Configure DHCP client to register itself to DNS server


I'm a newbie to Linux and need some help in DHCP client configuration.

I'm trying to find a way to set hostname at the start up and get the DHCP client to register itself after it received an IP address.

Please help.

You might want to take a look at this:

What you could do is setup a DHCP reservation and then create a DNS A record within DNS to point to that IP. Once the system boots up and DHCP hands it the reserved address it will have the hostname you configured within DNS.

Thank you Tuxtutorial,

I do not have access to the DHCP server. I'm trying to do what Windows can do on Linux machines.
