Event ID: 8018 Source: Microsoft-Windows-DNS-Client

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

           Adapter Name : {DF71F97C-9B9D-4DA4-8209-0C02978E8D3D}
           Host Name : <computer name>
           Primary Domain Suffix : <domain name>
           DNS server list :
             2001:718:1201:100::1, 2001:718:1201:100::17,,
           Sent update to server : <?>
           IP Address(es) :

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.
