I have IPv6 configured on my local network via radvd; it advertises a routable IPv6 block, that all the machines auto-configure.s

I have IPv4 assigned to a NAT'd block via dhcpd and that updates named.

My problem is that when I set the AAAA record for a host for it's IPv6 address (which doesn't change), named will then start rejecting name updates from dhcpd for the A record.

named reports the following error:

'name not in use' prerequisite not satisfied (YXDOMAIN)

dhcpd will report the following error:

Has an A record but no DHCID, not mine

How can I either convince dhcpd to ignore the AAAA record when doing the named update.
