Dynamic DNS updates for VPN clients


We use F5 APM as our main VPN solution for our employees. We're happy with it 🙂

However, we've been facing an issue for which we haven't found a solution yet.

On our LAN, our customers get IP addresses from our Microsoft DHCP servers which update the client DNS records in our Microsoft DNS servers (AD). Clients are not allowed to update DNS records directly.

Our clients are configured to use read-only DNS servers and not the main AD DNS servers.

With this configuration (the F5 cluster being the DHCP server), the clients are not able to update the DNS records in our AD DNS servers through the VPN.

Which solution would you recommend ? How could we bypass this limitation ?

Best Regards
