I get the following error from SBS 2008 Best Practices Analyzer....
"The host (A) resource record points to the incorrect IP address 172.27.138.2172.27.138.105. The record should point to 172.27.138.2."


What can I do to go about fixing this so it doesn't show up anymore?

Sounds like a bug in the Analyzer, most likely you have Remote Access enabled on the SBS which causes it to grab an additional IP address.  I didn't find a fix for this but I wouldn't consider it a problem either.  You could try deleting the 172.27.138.105 address from DNS but it will probably just re-register iteself.

Yeah, I've pretty much came upon the same conclusion myself I was just curious if there was something I could do to make Windows more happy.

I only get this error on SBS when I logon to the office thru a VPN.  When I don't use the VPN to access for 24 hours then the error magically goes away:)  I'm not an IT guy so maybe others can explain why?
