DNS-Multiple value priority
Posted on 2006-11-19
I have 2 windows 2003 servers, one of which is a DC, GC etc and a DNS for the internal network. The other server is also a DNS, configured to synchronise with the first.
Server1 has 3 network adaptors. Server 2 has 2 network adaptors. One adaptor in each is connected to a Gigabit ethernet adaptor and is used for the backup (backup runs from server 2 and backs up data from server1 amongst other things)
until recently, this was working fine - veritas was set to use the gigabit ethernet adapter by default and it was doing so. However, recently it has used the 100MBPS adaptor, causing a massive increase in backup time!!! I notice if I perform a nslookup, it returns the address of the 100MBPS adapter in server1.
How can I change the order in which addresses are given out from the DNS?
It's the standard DNS built into windows 2003.
thanks in advance.
