vmware issue with the virtual nics

We have vmware server 2 installed on a windows server running 2003.
After installation of vmware server 2.0 it created 2 virtual NICs:
vmnet1 = 192.168.35.1
vmnet8 = 192.168.94.1

The host has a static IP address of 192.168.1.11

my problem is in our active directory domain, there are 3 dns records for this server, the main ip address and the ip from vmnet1 and vmnet8. My problem is sometimes computers are trying to resolve the dns name of the server and its going to vmnet1 and then timing out..

How do I prevent this from happening? how do i make vmnet1 and vmnet8 transparent from the real network?

Thanks,
Brad Nelson

Go into each virtual adapter's properties. Open the properties for TCP/IP, and click the Advanced button. Go to the DNS tab and uncheck "Register this connection's addresses in DNS."

Then go into DNS and manually remove the A records pointing to the bad addresses.

LOL, I'm ashamed to say I didnt even think of that. I was assuming it was some setting in vmware.

Can we act like I never asked this question? Anyway thanks for the info.
