Is there any way to prevent the Juniper network adapter from updating the PC's DNS record? When I have clients split tunnel into other internal networks it updates DNS which then prevents me from using remote management tools like SCCM and computer management.
Thanks for the quick response. I will check the DNS server to see if there is any way I can accomplish what I need there.
Actually, there is a standard windows setting to prevent a network adapter from registering in DNS. This is on the adapter itself.
Properties of the adapter--Properties of tcp/ip--advanced button--DNS tab--uncheck the register this connection in DNS
The issue here is that the Junos Pulse adapter is created during the login process and controlled by the Pulse software. So it would be in Juniper's developers control to change this setting off the default of checked to unchecked. Obviously that would require code changes.
You could check the registry after the device is created and determine where this setting is located. Then create a script that applies a registry change to run after connection.
Thank you for ther update on that this could be fixed at the adapter level. One potential issue would be that some sites want to have the updates. Or are you thinking to have it be set up as an admin option?
I would see this as an admin option to set or not.
You are correct, I do want the update, we use this to access computers by name with our admin tools and remote control when connected to Junos Pulse.
But I do understand that for other circumstances, like vendor or outside partner computers, this may not be desirable and could cause issues with their local domain systems.
The MS default is to register any newly created adapters.
