DNS Server

Hi All,

I have a Server running Server 2012 r2 Standard. In the DNS manager I have 2 entries 1 is the server name and the other is the FQDN. I have attached a screenshot of what I'm talking about. Both are identical in every way. If I stop either one they both stop. In all other Server 2012's that we look after there is only one entry in the DNS manager which is the FQDN. If I delete one will both of them delete or can I delete them and re-create the DNS server.
This came to our attention when some of the clients that connect via VPN have complained that their folder access can be sporadic where they can have access to mapped folders today but possible not tomorrow. They can access these folders if they connect the VPN and enter \\ServerIP.
Combined with that, local client computers taking a long time to login after entering their passwords. The folder access issue is solely with the VPN clients.

It sounds like a DNS issue to me, but as I am only new at working with Servers I am unsure.

Hopefully I have explained this well enough!

Thanks in advance
