Powershell WINS\DNS settings

I have got this to change DNS\WINS settings

# Unhash DNS sections if required.

function SetDNSWINS {
#Get NICS via WMI
$NICs = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration -ComputerName $_ -Filter "IPEnabled=TRUE"

foreach($NIC in $NICs) {
#$DNSServers = "2.2.2.1","2.2.2.2"
#$NIC.SetDNSServerSearchOrder($DNSServers)
#$NIC.SetDynamicDNSRegistration("TRUE")
$NIC.SetWINSServer("1.1.1.111","1.1.1.222")
}
}

function GetFileName {
$computer = "c:\temp\serverlist.txt"
return $computer
}

$f = GetFileName
Get-Content $f | foreach {SetDNSWINS}

This does it on all adapters how can I get it to only change WINS address on adapters that already have a value there?  The reason is because of things like cluster heart beat etc?

Thanks

Give this a try
# Unhash DNS sections if required.

function SetDNSWINS {
#Get NICS via WMI
$NICs = Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration -ComputerName $_ -Filter "IPEnabled=TRUE"

foreach($NIC in $NICs) {
#$DNSServers = "2.2.2.1","2.2.2.2"
#$NIC.SetDNSServerSearchOrder($DNSServers)
#$NIC.SetDynamicDNSRegistration("TRUE")
if(!($NIC.WINSPrimaryServer -eq $null)){$NIC.SetWINSServer("1.1.1.111","1.1.1.222")}
}
}

function GetFileName {
$computer = "c:\temp\serverlist.txt"
return $computer
}

$f = GetFileName
Get-Content $f | foreach {SetDNSWINS}

Thanks a lot for the quick reply.

To confirm will this only change adapters with current WINS settings and leave blank one's blank.
i will try tomorrow in the lab


Thanks again

The change will look for a non blank entry in the Primary Wins Server. If it is not blank it will update the wins servers. If it is blank no change is made.
