Same DNS Server listed twice in DNS Manager

I recently installed windows server 2012 R2 in my lab and made it a dc with dns etc. When I look in the DNS manager, I see two entries for the same server; one with the hostname and one with the FQDN.

Example:  
DC1
DC1.domain.com

I don't see any issues with this so far but was curious as to what caused this. Does it have anything to do with ipv4 and ipv6? Thanks.

IPV4/6 should not cause this issue,have you added the server manually in the DNS console.You can try removing the one of the server from DNS and check how does it work as it is test lab.Also ensure correct dns setting as this:http://abhijitw.wordpress.com/2012/03/03/best-practices-for-dns-client-settings-on-domain-controller/

Thank you Sand, but I have followed those best practice before hand but seem to still see the duplicate. I will delete the one that is not the FQDN, since the other dns server is listed once by FQDN. Thanks again.

cmetcalf202,

I have the same issue, did deleting the non-FQDN entry work? Anyone else have thoughts on this?

Thanks
