This configuration parameter specifies the parameters to use for the addns command if it is launched by adclient (see adclient.dynamic.dns.enabled ).

For example, the default setting is:

adclient.dynamic.dns.command: /usr/sbin/addns -U -m

The -U option creates or updates the IP address and domain name pointer (PTR) records in the DNS server for the local computer.

The -m option uses the local computer account's Active Directory credentials to establish a security context with the DNS server.

Note:   UNIX computers that act as a gateway between networks may require you to specify the network adapter IP address in the addns command line. To ensure that you register the correct network address with the Active Directory DNS server, set adclient.dynamic.dns.command with a command line that uses the correct IP address for the network interface you want to use.
