How to disable creation of a record (dns) for each interface

We have problem with a domain with multiple server and interfaces.
It keeps creating A record for each interfaces on both the domain controllers. Some of the interfaces are not available to client and other server so it starting to be a problem.
I tried the DisableDynamicUpdate in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters" but it didn't seem to work.
Is there some other ways to disable this?

In the Advanced TCP/IP settings, go to the DNS page, and UN-tick the check box near the bottom "Register this connection's addresses in DNS."

If the DNS records have already been created, then you'll need to delete them manually as well as disabling dynamic creation.

Is your primary NIC at the top of the binding order?

Since these are your DCs, I guess they're DNS servers as well?
A DNS server will automatically register all IP addresses it's listening on; so if you don't need to provide DNS on the interfaces that are not accessed by the clients, simply unbind the DNS service from these addresses (and of course uncheck the box in the TCP/IP settings).
If you do need DNS on all interfaces, you'll need to configure the "PublishAddresses" value with the address you want to have in DNS.
Detail are here (should still be valid for Server 2008):
