DNS Registration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Computer is Intel Core I7 3820 with Windows 8.1.  I am using BIND 10.2 as a DNS server.  Presently there are three computers using BIND, two 8.1 machines and FreeNAS, which is running on FreeBSD. Every time I reboot, hundreds of the following messages appear in the System Event Log:

    The system failed to register host (A or AAAA) resource records (RRs) for network adapter

    with settings:

               Adapter Name : {ACD33C8A-AB3E-4978-9C68-31017F7EA744}

               Host Name : Luke

               Primary Domain Suffix : local.celliott.us

               DNS server list :


               Sent update to server : <?>

               IP Address(es) :


    The reason the system could not register these RRs during the update request was because of a system problem. You can manually retry DNS registration of the network adapter and its settings by typing 'ipconfig /registerdns' at the command prompt. If problems still persist, contact your DNS server or network systems administrator. See event details for specific error code information.

    The first four DNS servers in the above DNS server list are BIND; is the router, which uses the ISP's DNS servers. is this computer.  BIND has a problem registering users, and I can't figure it out and can't put any more time into it.  So on each network interface (2 on each computer: 192.168.0.XXX and 192.168.1.XXX), I disabled DNS registration.  Yet I still see all these DNS error messages.  Does anyone know why Windows 8.1 would still be trying to register these addresses even though DNS registration is turned off in the Network and Sharing Center Control Panel app?  The computer used to output similar messages when it tried to register itself with the ISP's DNS server.
