Set-DnsClientServerAddress

Sets DNS server addresses associated with the TCP/IP properties on an interface.

Syntax

Parameter Set: ByAlias
Set-DnsClientServerAddress [-InterfaceAlias] <String[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-PassThru] [-ResetServerAddresses] [-ServerAddresses <String[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Validate] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: ByName
Set-DnsClientServerAddress -InterfaceIndex <UInt32[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-PassThru] [-ResetServerAddresses] [-ServerAddresses <String[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Validate] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: InputObject (cdxml)
Set-DnsClientServerAddress -InputObject <CimInstance[]> [-AsJob] [-CimSession <CimSession[]> ] [-PassThru] [-ResetServerAddresses] [-ServerAddresses <String[]> ] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32> ] [-Validate] [-Confirm] [-WhatIf] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Set-DnsClientServerAddress cmdlet sets one or more IP addresses for DNS servers associated with an interface. This cmdlet statically adds DNS server addresses to the interface. If this cmdlet is used to add DNS servers to the interface, then the DNS servers will override any DHCP configuration for that interface.

Parameters

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete. The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet. For more information about Windows PowerShell® background jobs, see about_Jobs.

-ThrottleLimit<Int32>

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

<CommonParameters>

This cmdlet supports the common parameters: -Verbose, -Debug, -ErrorAction, -ErrorVariable, -OutBuffer, and -OutVariable. For more information, see    about_CommonParameters.

Inputs

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root\StandardCimv2\MSFT_DNSClient

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.


  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root\StandardCimv2\MSFT_DNSClientServerAddresses

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.


  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root\StandardCimv2\MSFT_NetAdapter

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.


  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root\StandardCimv2\MSFT_NetIPInterface

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.


Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance#root\StandardCimv2\MSFT_DNSClientServerAddress

    The Microsoft.Management.Infrastructure.CimInstance object is a wrapper class that displays Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) objects. The path after the pound sign (#) provides the namespace and class name for the underlying WMI object.
    The MSFT_DNSClientServerAddress class has the various DNS server IP addresses configured on a given interface. If no interface is specified, then all interfaces are configured.


Examples

EXAMPLE 1

This example sets the DNS server addresses on a specified interface with the index value of 12.


PS C:\> Set-DnsClientServerAddress -InterfaceIndex 12 -ServerAddresses ("10.0.0.1","10.0.0.2")

EXAMPLE 2

This example resets the DNS client to use the default DNS server addresses specified by DHCP on the interface with an index value of 12.


PS C:\> Set-DnsClientServerAddress –InterfaceIndex 12 -ResetServerAddresses
