NAS registration DNS failed - daily warning

Postby 1shot2killz » Fri Jul 06, 2018 6:39 pm

Every 24 hours (the time of first joining the domain) I get the following message:
Warning 2018/07/06 06:14:25 System localhost [Microsoft Networking] The NAS registration in DNS failed.

QNAP is connected to AD. The domain manager of Windows Server 2016. I do not see any problems in operation - permissions, users, access, etc.
Primary DNS on the QNAP network adapter set to the IP address of the domain controller. The second DNS left empty. QNAP also manually added to the domain controller.
Especially, it does not bother me, but every 24 hours I get annoyed with the error message.

Firmware version: Build 20180331
Server model: QNAP TS-831XU-RP

what is your DNS settings on the NAS's Network interfaces? do you have a DNS entry on the DNS server for your NAS?

Not sure there is a control to disable the attempted dynamic DNS update on the NAS/SAMBA side (at least without rebuilding your own SAMBA binaries, as it's a linked-in feature).

You might have to allow dynamic updates on your AD DNS server on the scope where the NAS is connected to, as it is [or was, I'm becoming old...] for workstations and member servers usually.
