Those are all of the IP's that are assigned on the NIC's for this server. Under the Interfaces Tab you de-select the IP's where you do not want to listen for DNS requests.

If you want to remove those IP's from the list then you need to remove the IP's from the NIC's

I cant remembering registering the IP 10.0.0.63... DNS should only listen to 10.0.0.11 (this is my DC/DNS)  is the 10.0.0.63 to do with the RRAS?  can I remove it or just leave it?

You will need to check the network Adapters on this DC/DNS server. The Fe8 address is a IPv6 address but also you will need to check if the network adapter has a secondary IP address on it. If it does you need to know what it is used for. However even though these IP's are listed under the Interfaces tab, they are correct for only listening on the 10.0.0.11 IP.

Check the Network adapters and additional IP's and if they are there you can remove them if they are not needed.

So based on that screenshot the 10.0.0.63 is your for PPPT connection. If this is being used then you should not remove it. However i am not sure why you would have this connection setup on your DC any way.

Yes this DC has the RRAS role installed... we use PPTP connection but I don't assign the address internally to 10.0.0.63 that's where I am abit confused... PPTP uses 10.0.0.11 from my firewall

When you create a PPTP you have to connect and authenticate. This is the client that is setup to establish the connection. That means that IP is only used when you are logged into the PPTP connection.

I get you, I'm eventually going to remove the RRAS role from this server so will this disappear from the DNS manager? I can't get rid of it now?
