Hi - FreeIPA newbie here trying to enable ddns updates from dhcpd to IPA. I
don't know if this is an IPA or dhcpd issue but thought I'd ask here. I'm also
not sure if TSIG the best, or only way to go.
All machines are CentOS 7 with ipa 3.3.3, actually only one machine involved,
IPA server and dhcpd are running on the same VM.
I followed guide here:
with one exception, I used "grant dhcpupdate zonesub A;" in the ipa
To test I did this:
nsupdate -k /tmp/testkey
update add newhost.inside.lan 86400 A 10.16.1.99
nsupdate works as expected, both forward and reverse records are added.
However updates from dhcpd are rejected, here's a snippet from two log files.
Oh and raising the trace level with 'rndc trace 9' didn't reveal anything
useful (to me anyway).

dhcpd is supposed to do the same thing as nsupdate so this is weird.
You can increase log level in BIND to 8:
$ rndc trace 8
to get more information about the failure
Alternative is to use tcpdump/wireshark and compare packages send by nsupdate
and dhcpd to see where the difference is.
Feel free to send me packet captures privately if you don't want to post them
to mailing list.
Have a nice day!
Petr - Thanks for the suggestion, that helped me solve the problem.
Turns out the difference is that dhcpd is also trying to add a TXT record
which nsupdate was not (because I didn't tell it to). So adding "grant
dhcpupdate zonesub TXT;" to the "ipa dnszone-mod" command fixes the
Actually it appears as though dhcpd tries to add a PTR record if the A and
TXT are successful. So I think I need to add "grant dhcpupdate zonesub
PTR;" to be complete.
