Microsoft DHCP Documentation Script Update Version 1.23

January 30, 2016

This is a very minor change. While doing an Active Directory assessment recently, I realized that I did not include the DHCP DNS dynamic update credentials in the report.

Minor gripe with Microsoft. In the DHCP console, the DHCP DNS dynamic update credentials are set at the protocol level. But set the credentials for one protocol and they are automatically set for the other protocol. In other words, this is a server setting, not a protocol setting. The DHCP PowerShell cmdlet for setting the credential is Set-DhcpServerDnsCredential and not a protocol level cmdlet. To retrieve the credentials, the cmdlet is Get-DhcpServerDnsCredential. So why aren’t the credentials set at the server level in the DHCP console?

OK, gripe over.
