Use AD GPO to change pc DNS settings

By joshhansen ·
I want to change the DNS Server addresses that are defined on all workstations/servers in my AD domain. Can I do this with Group Policy? I can create a VB script to do this and make it run on each PC at startup/shutdown/logon/logoff but I would rather not do it that way. Is there a policy setting that I can make to apply the new dns addresses to all NICS on each workstation/server without having to touch the machine (to restart it or log it on or off)?

Yes you can do this with the computer component of the default domain GPO (this is providing you are not blocking inheritance on any of the sub OU's) you can also do this in your DHCP configuration.

Unfortunately, you can only use GPO to change DNS settings on XP/2003 computers. Doesn't work for 2000 or lower.
