    Here is the deal, I did mean entries.  I want to change my DNS settings on all my servers to two new IP addresses without having to logon to every server.  I looked at, but I think that is for a DNS server itself.

    I assume this is because your server are statically assigned so that you can't push out the new DNS server IPs via DHCP, yes?

    Use PSExec to remotely execute netsh on each server in question, put your server names into a text file, one per line.  Here's your netsh syntax: (Daniel Petri's site is the best ever.)
