What account does DNS scavaging process under in Windows Server 2003 SP1?

We are doing scavaging and every once in a while a server's A record will be deleted. We also use WAN caching devices that participate in SMB signing (aka kereros) and those accounts are deleted as well. We'd like to restrict the security on those individual records so that when scavaging runs it can't delete them.

Make the records static, then they won't be deleted. Otherwise look at your dynamic update intervals compared with the Aging intervals you've set.

To do make them static:

Select View, then Advanced, then open the Properties for each record. Untick the box that allows them to be Scavenged when stale.

It should run under the local system account.
