DNS Listen Address
Posted on 2011-02-20
We recently transitioned to a new 2008 R2 Enterprise PDC with Exchange 2010 Enterprise. The server is an HP Proiant ML370 G6 Server with a Qlogic Quad Port Multifunction Gigabit Server Adapter. I have disabled two ports. I am using one port to authenticate VPNs using Routing and Remote Access. The other port is the primary port for everything else.
When I reboot the server, I find that the primary NICs address is not listed on DNS's Interface listing of addresses, and the seconday NIC's address is listed as Listen only on the following addresses.
1. Why would the primary NICs address be skipped over on the DNS Interface?
2. Why would the secondary NIC be listed. It is not even listed to be Registered in DNS.
I have used the following command to define the Listening port:
dnscmd Srv1d.DomainName.com /ResetListenAddresses 10.0.0.41
but with the same results.
As a bit more background, I only want the primary NICs address to be listed in DNS, otherwise some our our office's SQL Srvr applications will not work if there are two addresses listed for the computer name.
Any help would be appreciated.
