Not getting DNS from local server

I have 2 DNS servers in 2 locations that are also the respective AD and DHCP servers for each. they are connected over an MPLS connection. One is in U.S. and the other is in Hong Kong. I have traveled to the Hong Kong location and whn i boot up my laptop, i get the correct local IP from the DHCP but am still being assigned DNS from the server in the U.S. Anyone have any ideas what is causing this?

thanks

There are two possible issues. You may have the DNS server set for the US on the Hong Kong DHCP server (most likely not the issue) or, you have manually set the dns settings on the computer at some point in time. Go into the advanced properties under TCP/IP for the nic and delete all DNS IP addresses listed there. Then confirm that the adapter is getting the settings automatically.

Let me know if that doesnt fix the issue. Please Post the results of ipconfig /all if the above doesnt fix it.

1. You are in usa ad and on the usa there is policy that  all users  from that  domain uses  the usa DNS 2. It can be that  you have a resevered  ip on hongkong

3. on the ip seeting of your laptop u have entered usa dns in the advanced  setting which is  resulting the over of the hongkong DNS
4. The least likely  is that the DHCp on hongkong is using usa DNS  as their own

thanks for all your answers but unfortunately those arent the fixes. I should mention that all clients in the hong kong office are getting the us DNS settings. It's not my NIC on my laptop. If i travel accross the border to our China office my laptop picks up the correct local server DNS.

thanks

If all of the clients in the hong kong office are getting the us dns, I would expect the issue to be in the DHCP scope settings. When you look at the DNS settings in the DHCP scope, is it pointed to the US DNS?
