Hello,

I'm running AD03 on server 03, some application servers on 08 and both XP & 7 client workstations.

For static IP servers, should those dns records be Host (A) records? I'm concerned that scavenging old records may wipe those out if they are older than the defined scavenging period. But reading through MS info at the link below, I don't think that those other record types apply to what i'm doing.

Should I be using a different type of record for static IP servers and workstations, or would the record be recreated almost immediately once scavenged for those boxes?

Aging and scavenging only impacts dynamically registered records. Static entries you create will not be scavenged.

Each record type is unique and serves a specific purpose. You cannot use andifferent record type to accomplish the same goal. So if you want to map a name to an IP address, you NEED to create an A record.
