    Wondering if clients registering their DNS record in an Active Directory environment is necessary for it to function?

    DNS records are basically for clients to find resources in an Active Directory environment so having A records for the local printer server or domain controller makes sense. But what are the purposes of a client registering their own A record? Aside from maybe allowing an administrator to remote in the machine by domain name instead of IP address. Thanks!
