    Jaromir,

    Can you test if clearing the DNS resolver cache on your PDQ server causes it to look at the newest A record for that computer?

    Hi Luke,

    I solved this problem by changing IKEv2 VPN connection settings:

    First option is "Register adresses for this connection in DNS", Second one "Use DNS suffix for this connection for DNS registration". During testing and switching between LAN and VPN (through phone WIFI) the IP addresses in PDQ Inventory was updates with ~5 minutes latency (despite being updated immidiately after setting/changing connection in DNS) . I think it's enough, so i won't investigate this problem any longer ;)

     

    Best Regards,

    Is there a way to push "Register adresses for this connection in DNS" via PDQ Deploy or GPO ?

    Hi,

    I belive you can create or find powershell script which actually does it, but from my research i can say they won't work until the (vpn) connection is active. I also heard that people try to push gpo with scheduled task, which run the script after the connection has been activated.
