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

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.
