I wonder if the dhcp topic is anything to do with where the dhcp box is
situated? The only problem we have had with ddns updates is when we add
a Linux client to the domain, and then only with the reverse zone[1].
Our dhcp server sits between the domain and our internet connection. It
also does wireless. All we have to configure is the start of the IP
range and the number of IPs in the (what Cisco term) 'pool'. That's it.
We never run out of IPs and the updates are transparent.
Our ddns updates are via sssd which in turn uses nsupdate -g. The only
way to get the reverse zone updated is to delete the zone and then
recreate it.
Just thinking out loud...
