DNS entries on a Windows 2000 Server

How can I distinguish between Static verses Dynamic entries on a Windows 2000 Server?  I see DNS entries classified as host but nothing with alias.  Thanks in advance for your help.

I don't believe there is a way to distinguish the two by looking in DNS.  What was your purpose for needing to distinguish them, because there may be another way to find the info you're looking for (such as through DHCP administrator)

Thanks for answering the question.  I just want to make sure our mail server is statically set and will not change even though the physical box ip address will change.  We have a third partly software to manipulate DNS.  For example we will have two boxes A .1 and B .2 and the DNS entry currently for A is .3.  I need this entry .3 to remain without changing dynamically. I hope this clarifies it.

Oh one more thing the two boxes' names will change.

I think I understand what you are trying to do.  Devices with static IPs do not update DNS dynamically (though I think Domain Controllers will when they become Domain Controllers, but that's not the case here.)  Any static entry in DNS you make will remain there until you change it, so you can make the changes to the boxes and know that your static DNS entries will remain until you manually change them.
