Please have a think about this. You have quite rightly assigned a static
IP to your DC. You must _not_ perform the ddns update there! It does not
and should not move from that IP. Ever. The reason for having ddns
updates is so that DNS can keep track of the client machines you have
joined to the domain. These machines (usually for convenience) receive
their IP via dhcp.

OK. Time to configure one, install sssd with the ad backend and test
ddns and nsupdate from there.
