Release Notes: Clients enrolled to an Active Directory domain may be allowed to update their DNS records stored in AD dynamically. At the same time, Active Directory servers support DNS aging and scavenging, which means that stale DNS records might be removed from AD after a period of inactivity. This RFE makes it possible for Linux clients to update or refresh their DNS records.


In order to work with AD DNS scavenging we need to update the Dynamic DNS records regularly. I believe the sssd IPA client has support for this.

Note to self after discussion on devconf with simo - we might need to force and update even if the address hasn't changed to keep AD from reaping the record. Requires testing to be sure.
