Brian Lich|Last Updated: 3/27/2017

SYNOPSIS

Gets DNS server IP addresses from the TCP/IP properties on an interface.

SYNTAX

Get-DnsClientServerAddress [-InterfaceIndex <UInt32[]>] [[-InterfaceAlias] <String[]>]
 [-AddressFamily <AddressFamily[]>] [-CimSession <CimSession[]>] [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>] [-AsJob]
 [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Get-DnsClientServerAddress cmdlet gets one or more DNS server IP addresses associated with the interfaces on the computer.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Get DNS server IP addresses for all interfaces

PS C:\> Get-DnsClientServerAddress

This example gets the DNS server IP addresses configured on all the interfaces on a computer.

Example 2: Get DNS server IP addresses for a specified interface

PS C:\> Get-DnsClientServerAddress -InterfaceAlias "Wired Ethernet Connection"

This example gets the DNS server IP addresses configured on the interface named Wired Ethernet Connection.

PARAMETERS

-AddressFamily

Specifies the address family. The acceptable values for this parameter are: IPv4 or IPv6.

Type: AddressFamily[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Family
Accepted values: IPv4, IPv6

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-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.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type: CimSession[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-InterfaceAlias

Specifies the friendly name of the interface.

Type: String[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: 0
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-InterfaceIndex

Specifies the index number of the interface.

Type: UInt32[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: True (ByPropertyName, ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters: False

-ThrottleLimit

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.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False
