VMWare Servers virtual ip's being registered in DNS

Hi,

I have VMWare Server installed on an Windows 2003 Std additional DC. After a
reboot of the primary DC the virtual IP addresses of VMWare's Virtual
Network Devices have started to appear in the DNS server, and breaking
connectivity The additional DC is on subnet 192.168.10.0, but the virtual
network devices IP's are 192.168.219.1 and 192.168.5.1. On the additional DC
when pinging the server name the correct IP is pinged of 192.168.10.2, but
on the primary the IP of one of the virtual network interfaces is pinged
which is not contactable outside the system.

If I delete the Host (A) records after about 20 minutes they re-appear.

I have also gone into the virtual network interface properties "IP
Addresses" -> "Advanced" -> "DNS" and un ticked the "Register this
connection's addresses in DNS". After a few hours (getting back to work)
again the IP's have appeared in the DNS server.

This does not happen for any other VMWare Server install on the network.

Is there any way to stop these records appearing in the DNS server, as once
the records appear, AD cannot synchronize.

Thanks for your time.

PaulG.

SOLVED

Checking the properties in the DNS MMC for your server, in the interfaces
tab you can specifically set the IP address the server will listen on for
DNS requests. Removed the virtual IP's and left the physical ones.
