Terminal Server with two NICs

I have a terminal server setup on a LAN (10.193.2.12) that is connected to a remote office through a point to point VPN. The application being used on the termserver1 accesses data on a SQL server (10.193.2.13). Everything has been working well for quite a while.

I would like to install a second term server with two NICs. The first NIC (192.168.19.11) will be connected to the remote office though a second point to point VPN. RDP clients will connect to termserver2 using this IP. I now need termserver2 to communicate with the SQL server on the second NIC (10.193.2.11). I setup the routing to direct traffic to the correct NIC. This setup works for a while then fails. The problem i seem to be running into is DNS. It seems the DNS server (10.193.2.10) is seeing both NICs on termserver2 causing termserver2 to sometimes resolve to 192.168.19.11 on the 10.193.2.0 network.

Any idea where i am going wrong and how to correct it?

Probably the easiest workaround would be to disable auto dns registration and just make static entries for your server.
