Microsoft dhcp not updating dns records
Also note that the device’s specific hardware revision ( Less than 10 minutes later a second entry from the same device appears, this time reporting that it is running the latest 7577 build.The device is again asking for a download package, but since it is now on the latest approved no URL response is given by the Lync Server.Although the client features are identical between the Aries devices the firmware is unique between the different manufacturer’s devices in order to support differing hardware components and physical features.So there are now three separate packages which can be downloaded: one for the original Tanjay devices, a second for Polycom’s Aries devices, and a third for Aastra’s Aries devices.These are very old beta versions that I have not even had my hands on in a long time and unfortunately cannot test upgrading them directly against Lync Server.My advice is to upgrade these using an OCS environment with this process documented by Rui Silva. As with all software updates it would be prudent to first test one a single device before blasting it out to all of the phones in the organization.When updating Aries device there are no legacy hostnames used and as these devices only operate with Lync Server. Download and install the update package on to the Lync Server. Configure a test device to first validate a successful update and working installation. Trigger an update on the test device (or just wait). But understand this is not necessary and now that the Test Device is created the associated device will update on it’s own after a period of inactivity (typically 10 minutes).The process is even simpler to support, except for the case that a pre-release beta device is in question. The reboot simply triggers the phone to look for an update without waiting as long.
DNS provides a name to number (IP address) mapping or translation, allowing internet users to use, easy to remember names, and not numbers to access resources on a network and the Internet.
If a device has the slightly newer beta version 1.0.452 or 1.0.522 then this process also documented by Rui can be used. The Test Device configuration in Lync Server allows for a single device to automatically download the latest version of the software available regardless of whether it has been approved yet or not.
In most cases the latest OCS 2007 R2 software (3.5.6907) will be installed on a Tanjay and this version is capable of signing directly into Lync Server given that the required DHCP options are configured. At this point a reboot of the phone can help kick things off a bit quicker as well as make it easy to track the progress though server logs which may be full of activity from other devices in use on the network.
After some time has passed and sufficient testing has been completed in the environment then each of the supported device updates should be approved so any device can be updated automatically.
The Test Device object can be retained for later use or deleted if no longer testing with that specific device.
