- On my Windows Server 2003 machine, I go into the "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties" window and manually change my Preferred DNS Server to something else.
- Then I go to a Command prompt window and do "ipconfig /all" and I can see that the Ethernet Adapter Private Network entry has reflected the change.
- Then a few minutes later, I do ipconfig /all again, and the DNS Servers have been changed to their previous setting.
What is going on?
P.S. In case it's relevant, I have two Windows Server 2003 servers on the network. This weird phantom re-setting isn't happening on the other server. However, the next problem I have to tackle is, replication isn't happening between the two machines either. I can ping the servers by their name and by their IP address, but there are multiple error entries in the Event Viewer complaining that replication isn't happening. But let's deal with one problem at a time.
