If you manage your domain's Office 365 records at your DNS hosting provider, you don’t have to worry about the steps in this topic.

I have checked the event viewer logs for the DHCP and DNS server but nothing is present?

If you are working with, well almost anything network intensive these days, like Antivirus or management tools, your Reverse DNS (r DNS) lookups need to be in good shape.

Hello, We have started to have lookup problems in out network.

When a new client gets an IP address, DHCP doesn't update DNS with the record. The DHCP and DNS are on the same box (which is also the primary DC).

IP Settings on the clients correctly show both DNS servers.

When you make a DNS change, it takes time for the changes to take effect. It is the time it takes for the domain DNS to refresh the cache on the network.

If you find that you can not resolve IP’s back to a name on your network check your DNS REVERSE LOOKUP ZONE.

If there are missing entries, you likely have your DHCP missing one of two settings: This is required if you have DHCP installed on a Domain Controller.

The cache is cleared over a certain amount of time.

We suggest waiting up to 24 hours for the DNS cache to be fully refreshed. When the DNS refreshes according to its TTL, the propagation is complete and your site will load.
