Hi all,

  One of the nice FreeIPA features is a host will be added to DNS
automatically when the client is installed. However, in some situations
using an other, external, DNS server is prefered. Now, this is possible but
hosts have to added manually to this other DNS-server.

  Is it possible to handle DNS records by IPA on an external DNS server? Any
future plans for this?
This automatic update is handled by SSSD and uses standard DNS update
protocol. I.e. it should work as long as your 'external' DNS server is
configured to accept updates from clients.

This is the update not the creation.
Will the update create both A/AAAA and PTR record?
I thought that it will just update IP but not create these records.
If I am correct then the question is valid and we need to have a way to create entries in an external data store.

Sounds like another use case for the notification system.
And for that we do not have firm plans yet but we are collecting the use cases to justify the effort.
Martin do you think it is worth opening a ticket?

Please refer to documentation to your DNS server for further information and
let us know if you encounter some problem.

Have a nice day!

Thank you,
