We have a Windows 2008 that is multihomed.  One nic is on the LAN, two NICS are iSCSI Nics that connect to our SAN.  All Nics have static IP adresses.  This 2008 server is a DC and does DNS.  The iSCSI Nics keep registering themselves in DNS automatically.  We've unchecked the option in the Advanced settings under TCP/IP, we've also added the registry key 'DisableDynamicUpdate' for the iSCSI adapters.  The server is fully patched and has been rebooted after these changes, but it keeps registering the iSCSI adapters in DNS.  We need it to only register the LAN adapter.

Is this server your Domain Controller? Not really good idea to have your DC or DNS server running multihomed this causing these types of issues.

Go into your Network Connections click Advance Settings Make sure your primary NIC is listed first.

The primary LAN adapter is listed first.  I did restrict the DNS server to only listen on the LAN IP address so I will see if this helps.
