New network registration system to replace NetReg on May 31
A new network registration system, DukeReg, will replace the NetReg system for IP address management, effective May 31.
The new system will provide centralized management of IP addresses, DNS names and DHCP; improve security, reliability and scalability; and help in the eventual transition to IPv6.
After May 31, users needing to register a new device on the Duke network can visit dukereg.duke.edu, where on-screen instructions will guide them through the registration process.
No changes are necessary for devices currently registered on the system.
OIT will provide pointers from all current DNS servers to the new DNS servers, so old addresses will continue to work. These pointers will be active until the end of August. After that, the old DNS entries will be removed.
OIT is working directly with system administrators during the transition. If you administer a non-duke.edu domain that you believe is hosted on Duke's authoritative name servers and have not been contacted by OIT, please email email@example.com.
Information about the new DukeReg system is available online.
