I have 4 DNS domains I want to query for server names in the environment I work in. I have to add the 4th one manually using the

add srchlist=domain.com

command

Two questions. Where does a DNS client (in this case a WinXP Pro laptop) get the srchlist values from? I assumed It was from the DNS suffix search list listed using the ipconfig /all command. I believe in my network the DNS and other network settings come from the DHCP server or from active directory group policy. Is it possible for me to make the above add srchlist command setting for the 4th domain permanent? Can I hardcore it into the registry or text file? Or should I ask a network admin to add it to the default srchlist defaults?

Regards

in a DHCP enviroment, dns settings are configured at the DHCP server. But, you can configure manually on each XP machine the DNS servers it would resolve from.
those settings are under TCP/IP settings of your network interface.

i am fine with the DNS servers to be used for resolution, what I want is a way for the manual settings I put into the "srchlist" command to stick. Is there a way to do that?
