Is there a way to script the "Use this connection's DNS suffix in DNS registration" check box to be enabled?

We would like to enable a check box with the TCP/IP properties - Advanced TCP/IP Settings - DNS - "Use this connection's DNS suffix in DNS registration.  Is there a way to script this in or possibly add a DHCP scope option?  Our problem is that we can't apply policies until their computer names are registered in DNS and the Windows XP workstations won't register with the DNS servers until the check box is enabled.  We are running a Windows 2003 server with DHCP/DNS in and Active Directory environment (native 2003).

If your DNS is set up to allow secure and unsecure updates, it should allow registration of the systems even if they are not domain members. Otherwise, they should register automatically when an AD-authorized DHCP server provides a lease to the client.

Here's a script you're looking for:

This one is worth a shot as well.

I assume you are not using WINS on this network?

Yes, our DNS is configured to allow secure and unsecure updates and we are not using WINS.  I'll check your referenced scripts, but I believe I'm looking for something more specific
