    Hi guys,

    I need to integrate a Cisco DHCP server on a 4506 Catalyst with
    Windows 2003 DNS server, Is it possible for the DNS entry to be
    updated? And whether it is recommended or not?

    DHCP and DNS are completely independent of each other. If you give out the
    DNS server address of the Microsoft DNS server as a DHCP option, then that's
    the address the PC will send its DNS dynamic update.

    you need to configure the DHCP to send the info to clients:

    ip dhcp pool my-pool-name
    import all

    hope this helps
