AD DNS timestamps have strange values
Last modified: 2015-03-02 00:27:40 EST
Description of problem:
AD DNS timestamps have strange values. SSSD is configured with 'dyndns_update = True' entry. But DNS timestamp in AD have strange value after the entry is added. Here is an example:
Date on AD machine is '5/9/2013 3:24 PM', but added DNS entry has timestamp '5/9/2013 3:00:00'
I think it is strange, but maybe it is a problem on AD side.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
SSSD has nothing to do with the timestamps, it just sends the nsupdate to AD, the timestamps are generated by AD.
I double checked the Microsoft documentation to make sure the timestamps are expected. Turns out they are, AD generates the timestamps rounded down to the nearest hour:
See for example:
But you're right that we didn't mention this explicitly prior to the test day. I will amend our test plans accordingly. Thanks!
