I have a server 2008 running MS Exchange 2007. This server is running hyper-V and it is also a DNS server.

I am having a issue where the virtual network adapter is registering itself in DNS which is causing my email server to un available from the remote site.

How can I prevent the virtual adapter in Hyper-V to not publish/register its IP address in DNS.

I haven't used hyper-v but if there is a virtual lan connection under network connections. I would assume you can turn off the DNS setting the same as regular lan connection.  If you can click on the properties of the virtual connection and then click on Internet protocol (tcp/ip) properties.  You can click on the advanced button and under the DNS tab you can uncheck the box the says "Register this connection in DNS".  
Hope this helps.

I am able to do that using Hyper - V.

add a static entry on the DNS server for the hyper-v server then from the security tab remove the hyper-v server " hostname" .

I meant remove the computer object .

Step 1.
 Disable the option "Register this connection's address in DNS" field under advanced TCP/IP properties and delete the DNS record, but if it still reregisters the address after 15 or 20 minutes the follow the step 2.

Step 2.

To disable the ability for the dynamic registraion for a NIC follow the link given below. Please scroll down to the bottom and navigate to the section listed below:
