On my Windows 2008 Server's NIC properties, there is an tickbox for "Register this connection's address in DNS".
I know that I can also run ipconfig/registerdns from the DOS prompt.
Can someone tell me - are these effectively the same thing? Does the NIC setting effectively mean that the server was going to dynamically register itself in DNS. And the /registerdns setting means doing the same, but with an admin running the command to do so?
And what if Dynamic DNS wasn't supported by the DNS server? What would happen to both of these options then?
This question applies to both AD DNS and UNIX DNS.
