DNS entry problems on a DC with attached iSCSI

We’ve recently set up a new DC with some iSCSI storage attached- single site, so the DC is providing DC & file storage.

In DNS, the LAN and iSCSI entries were showing up which was annoying, as pinging generally didn’t work because it would try to find the iSCSI network.

In short, you don’t need to mess around with any network connections or fiddle about in the registry- use method 2 from


Just stop the DNS on the DC listening on any port other than the LAN- including an IPv6 interfaces (in our case at any rate).
