Configure a MIC card with a Static Primarary DNS IP and Alternate DNS IP from the dos prompt? I know that using the netsh command I can configure a Static IP, Subnet Mask and default gateway, but I don't know how to configure a Static Priminary DNS IP, can anyone help?

I want to be able to do this on a Server 2003 system and XP Pro systems.

Below is the command I used to configure the Static IP from dos:
netsh>interface ip set address name ="Local Area Connection" static 168.1.1.25 255.255.255.0 168.1.1.1
I would think that there is a similiar way to do this for a Static DNS ip also?

Thank you,
DSterling

To define the first DNS server:
netsh interface ip set dns "Local Area Connection" static 1.2.3.4
To define additional DNS servers:
netsh interface ip add dns "Local Area Connection" 1.2.3.5
