Have a windows 2003 domain.

Clients are using cabled lan or wireless or both.

The advanced tcp/ip settings for DNS on the clients changes regulary.

I want to have these checked:
"Append primary and connection specific DNS suffixes"
       "Append parent suffixes (in order)

I DON'T want this one checked:
"Append these DNS suffixes (in order)"

I can visit the pc's and set it up correct, but it will switch back again to "Append these DNS suffixes (in order)".

Where does this change come from? DHCP, DNS or what?

    Create a new Group policy to your computer's OU in Active Directory users and computers
    Look into a GPO setting for a DNS suffix, it would be a machine setting->Administrative templates->Network->DNS Client.
