Setting DNS via group policy
Posted on 2007-04-10
I am working on a project for a small business. They have Windows Server 2003 and 6 or 7 clients hooked to it. Currently there is a group policy that sets the clients dns servers to the windows 2003 server. I am doing some upgrades to their network and the ip of the server is changing. I turned off the group policy setting that sets the dns server so now it grabs whatever the router says the ip for dns is. I know this because when I do an ipconfig /all I see the dns ip for the isp. However, when I do an nslookup for a domain it shows that it is still trying to use the old ip for the windows server as the dns. I've tried flushing the dns, running group policy update etc and nothing seems to work. How do I get rid of this group policy setting on the local computer level?
