kea-dhcp-ddns(8) DHCP-DDNS process in Kea


kea-dhcp-ddns [-v] [-V] [-W] [-d] [-s]


The kea-dhcp-ddns service process requests to update DNS mapping based on DHCP lease change events. The service may run either as a Kea module (integrated mode) or as a individual process (stand-alone mode) dependent upon command line arguments. The default is integrated mode. Stand alone operation is strictly for development purposes and is not suited for production.


The arguments are as follows:


Display the version.


Display the extended version.


Display the configuration report.


Verbose mode sets the logging level to debug. This is primarily for development purposes in stand-alone mode.


Configuration file including the configuration for DHCP-DDNS server. It may also contain configuration entries for other Kea services.


The b10-dhcp-ddns process was first coded in May 2013 by the ISC Kea/DHCP team.

Kea became a standalone server and the BIND10 framework was removed. The DHCP-DDNS server binary was renamed to kea-dhcp-ddns in July 2014.
