Enable addns invoked by adclient

Enable whether adclient automatically launches the addns command. The addns command dynamically updates the DNS records on an Active Directory-based DNS server in environments where the DHCP server cannot update DNS records automatically.

In most cases, you do not need to use the addns command if a host’s IP address is managed by a Windows-based DNS server and the host obtains its IP address from a Windows-based DHCP server because the DHCP server updates the DNS record for the host automatically.

If you are not using a Windows-based DNS server, you should use nsupdate or a similar command appropriate to the operating environment of the DNS server to update DNS records.

You can set the parameters of the addns command by specifying them in the Set command line options used by adclient group policy.

The default value for Mac OS X computers is True. The default value for all other platforms is False.

This group policy modifies the adclient.dynamic.dns.enabled parameter in the agent configuration file.
