Clients cannot log on to domain controllers that are Windows Server 2003-based DNS servers, and network interfaces that are not registered in DNS can still perform dynamic updates

Symptoms

After you install Microsoft Windows Server 2003 on a "multihomed" domain controller that is a DNS server, clients may not be able to log on, and network interfaces that are not registered in DNS can still perform dynamic updates. (A "multihomed" domain controller is a computer that has multiple network adapters or that has been configured with multiple IP addresses for a single network adapter.) This problem occurs on domain controllers with new (non-upgrade) installations of Windows Server 2003 and on computers that have been upgraded to Windows Server 2003 from Microsoft Windows 2000.

Cause


This problem occurs because if you clear the Register this connection's address in DNS check box under Advanced TCP/IP Settings for one of the network interfaces and then restart the Netlogon service, the Netlogon service ignores the settings. The client computer that tries to connect to one of the multihomed interfaces for the domain controller may have no valid IP route.

After you apply this hotfix, only network interfaces that have dynamic update registration enabled appear in the Netlogon.dns file. Therefore, you can disable the dynamic update registration of A records on a per-interface basis on a domain controller. (The list of records that Netlogon tries to register is stored in the %SystemRoot%\System32\Config\Netlogon.dns file. This log file lists records that are required to be registered for the domain controller.)

Status

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.

This problem was first corrected in Windows Server 2003 Service Pack 1.
