Foreman with Microsoft DNS and DHCP

Hello. I am new with Foreman and have some questions about windows support in foreman. We use MS products, but now want to introduce linux servers to our environment. Hope someone could help me to find answers.

  1. I want to use foreman with external MS DNS and DHCP servers. Installing an External Smart Proxy Server 3.1 does not mention windows support, but Foreman :: Manual does. So what is current status of windows and ms support?
  2. Guide for windows server smart proxy is scarce and looks outdated. Do i need to install smart proxy on windows server to work with external MS DHCP and DNS or can stick with lunux smart proxy?

We are using Foreman and Katello with Windows DHCP and DNS. We don’t have any issues with that. We don’t use smart proxy for Windows at all.

For Windows DNS, we are using :use_provider: dns_nsupdate_gss in the foreman proxy DNS settings.

For DHCP we have our own scripts to manage it and we didn’t integrate it with Foreman through smart proxy. We have added our subnets and we are assigning addresses with Foreman to new hosts.


There is a bug that slipped into 3.1 but we will fix that in an update soon.
