Another thing you’ll see when there is an 8.1 or a Server 2012 R2 in your network is this error:

EVENT # 3279
EVENT LOG System
EVENT TYPE Warning
OPCODE Info
SOURCE Microsoft-Windows-DNS-Client
EVENT ID 8018
USERNAME NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE
COMPUTERNAME   Server
DATE / TIME   3/29/2014 10:43:44 PM
MESSAGE

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

Adapter Name : {2228D0D8-DFEC-4673-B8E3-C8913948C8FD}
Host Name : TPDF
Primary Domain Suffix : domain.lan
DNS server list :
10.0.0.5
Sent update to server : <?>
IP Address(es) :
x.x.x.x

The reason the system could not register these RRs was because the DNS server contacted refused the update request. The reasons for this might be (a) you are not allowed to update the specified DNS domain name, or (b) because the DNS server authoritative for this name does not support the DNS dynamic update protocol.

To register the DNS host (A or AAAA) resource records using the specific DNS domain name and IP addresses for this adapter, contact your DNS server or network systems administrator.


I have yet to figure out what exactly triggers this.. .but it’s another “ignore this until I track down why it’s doing this” error
