You can use this procedure to enable or disable the global query block list on the Domain Name System (DNS) server. For more information about the global query block list, see Managing the Global Query Block List.

Membership in Administrators, or equivalent, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at Local and Domain Default Groups (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477).

  1. Open a command prompt. To open an elevated Command Prompt window, click Start, point to All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.

  2. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

    dnscmd [<ServerName>] /config /enableglobalqueryblocklist 0|1
    

 

Value Description

dnscmd

The command-line tool for managing DNS servers.

<ServerName>

Specifies the DNS host name of the DNS server. You can also type the IP address of the DNS server. To specify the DNS server on the local computer, you can also type a period (.) or omit the host name.

/config

Required. Modifies the configuration of the DNS server.

/enableglobalqueryblocklist

Required. Specifies that the command enables or disables the global query block list.

0|1

Specifies whether to enable or disable the global query block list. If you want the DNS Server service to ignore queries for the names in the block list, you set the value of the command to 1. If you want to disable the global query block list, you set the value to 0.

  • To determine whether the global query block list is enabled, type the following command at a command prompt:

    If the command returns a value of 1, the global query block list is enabled. If the command returns a value of 0, the global query block list is not enabled.
