  • Question

  • Hi all,

    Has anyone ever seen behavior where the DCA stops correctly changing the value of HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\DNSClient\EnableDAForAllNetworks?  It seems it's supposed to be set to 0 when using DirectAccess name resolution and 2 when using local resolution.  Yesterday, on the machine of a manager where I work, the DCA decided to stop changing that value and left it set to 2 regardless of whether he had it set to corporate resolution or local.  What's worse, even if you manually changed it to 0, it went back to 2 after a reboot.  What's up with that?

    I figured this out and uninstalled the thing, but didn't have time to use process monitor to really diagnose it.  Anyone ever see this or know a root cause?
