I just built my first Windows 2008 R2 Domain Contoller on our Windows 2003 network.  DCPromo went well, all is functioning well, but I am getting the Event ID 4319 "NetBT" event.  I ran the nbtstat-n command and this is the results..

NetBIOS Local Name Table

      Name               Type         Status
   ---------------------------------------------
   ZWDCAD08       <00>  UNIQUE      Registered
   CHA            <00>  GROUP       Registered
   CHA            <1C>  GROUP       Registered
   ZWDCAD08       <20>  UNIQUE      Registered

ocal Area Connection 3:
ode IpAddress: [192.168.148.5] Scope Id: []

               NetBIOS Local Name Table

      Name               Type         Status
   ---------------------------------------------
   ZWDCAD08       <00>  UNIQUE      Registered
   CHA            <00>  GROUP       Registered
   CHA            <1C>  GROUP       Registered
   ZWDCAD08       <20>  UNIQUE      Registered

As you can see I have two NICs with static IPs.  I've never been too clear on this so excuse my ignorance, but the ZWdcad08 is the name of the DC and CHA is the Netbios Name of our Domain.  I don't understand the conflict.  Can you help?

Well when you have two NICs enabled on a DC you can cause issues like this.

First go to TCP\IP properties then DNS tab uncheck register with DNS on the nic that is not running default gateway

Go into DNS run through link http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc740071(WS.10).aspx

Go to binding order make sure primary NIC is listed first

But overall recommendation is to disable second NIC

You are awesome.  Do you recommend binding the NICS or like you said, disable the 2nd one?

I would disable the second one and make sure that the one that is enabled is listed first in the binding order
