DNS Servers

Defines the DNS servers to which a computer sends queries when it attempts to resolve names.

Warning: The list of the DNS servers defined in this setting supersedes DNS servers configured locally and those configured using DHCP. The list of DNS servers is applied to all network connections of multihomed computers to which this setting is applied.

To use this setting, click Enable, and then enter a space-delimited list of IP addresses (in dotted decimal format) in the available field. If you enable this setting, you must enter at least one IP address.

If this setting is not configured, it is not applied to any computers, and computers use their local or DHCP-configured parameters.
