configuration, really) register themselves with DNS.

I'm not sure how to check this.  Although, in DNS each NIC (subnet) has a
PTR record for the DC representing the IP address of the subnet it sits
upon.  Is this what you wanted?

have other requirements, you may not want all NICs to be registering
themselves - maybe only one.

And that's exactly what's happening.  Although, I know of no way around it.

Actually, I did check this - and yes, it is listening on all three
interfaces.  My reasons are (what I thought was) pretty simple.  If all
users on all subnets needed a DNS server (and they do) they why not allow
them to send it to the one their subnet, no?

Also,  I've setup the sites and added particular subnets.  I'm assuming that
when I attempt to logon from one of the subnets, it will force me to use the
server (which is the same for all three) that I've identified, no?
