Within the options of the network - TCP/IP options you have to tick boxes under advance - DNS

The first is "Register this connection's addresses in DNS"

The second is "Use this connection's DNS suffix in DNS registration"

I can find articles on how to enable or disable the first option, however I can't find anything regarding the second one.

I want to find out which registry key affects the second so I can change it either through a script or with custom registry entries in group policy

This shows that the option is available but says nothing about the registry key. Read this one the other day

The answer to this question is:

The registry key required is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Interfaces\

Then there will be a GUID for the NIC you have and under there is a Key called

RegisterAdapterName

This needs to have a value of 1 or 0 and the selection in regedit needs to be hexidecimal.
