Cisco Router as DHCP configuration change

I have a router that was configured by a consultant and we are having trouble contact him so I figure I would take a stab at this.
The router is the DHCP Server for the remote location, but the DNS Server is a Windows box located in the main office.
The router has 2 older DNS server configured on it that will soon be decommisioned.
I would like to change the DNS-Server information  to reflect the two newer servers.
This is what I tried, but did not have any success.
 
Conf t
IP DHCP POOL <name>
DNS-SERVER <ip-address> <ip-address>
ctrl-z

Open in new window

I do not see the changes.
What am I doing wrong.

>I do not see the changes.

What command are you using to "see" the changes.

After configuring you should save the running config to startup. (copy run start)

Looks like you weren't aware that DHCP pool names are case sensitive. When you were trying to create your new DNS addresses, you created a pool named "data".

So after you get the new DHCP info in the "DATA" DHCP pool, I suggest you remove the invalid or unused pools

config t
no ip dhcp pool data
no ip dhcp pool 192.168.3.1/24
end
