Why Doesn’t My DNS Get Updated by Kea?

Kea does DNS updates if the client sends either the Host Name or Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) option in the REQUEST.

If the client sends both, the server will use the FQDN. Typically a client would issue a DISCOVER asking for the Host Name and then send it back in the REQUEST, or use it to construct a FQDN option and send that in the request.

If your client is not providing either option, the server does not do DNS.
