Event ID 11200 — DNS Client Registration

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

A computer that is configured to use Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) to obtain IP addresses can automatically register its IP address and Domain Name System (DNS) name with the DNS server that is authoritative for the zone that hosts its domain. This eliminates the need for an administrator to manage host (A or AAAA) resource records for client computers. Problems with automatic registration do not prevent a computer from accessing the network, but they can prevent other network computers from being able to locate the computer.
