    Stop network adapter registering with DNS

    Hello guys,
    I'm in deperate need of a solution to my problem.

    I have a server with 3 lan cards in, each of which has a different IP, only one of these needs to have it's address available by DNS.

    I've tried a few things:
    1. Unticking the box under:Connection Properties -> TCP/IP -> Advanced -> DNS -> Don't register..blah
    2. Setting DisableDynamicUpdate=1 under: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Tcpip\Parameters\Adapters<Adaptername>

    But after deleting entries from the DNS server i am still getting the addresses back after an hour.
    Has anybody found a way to stop adapters registering with dns?

    Btw, half way through writing this i realised that i'd only deleted records from one dns server and may have been replicating back from the other server, if that's the case i'll let you know.

    Cheers,

    Matt

    Re: Stop network adapter registering with DNS

    Found the answer to this:

    Since the server were DC's running DNS they were advertising their hostnames via the DNS service, to fix you bind the dns service only to the interfaces you want it to advertise.

    In DNS Console, go to server properties, interfaces tab and remove unwanted IP addresses.
