Set DNS suffix for this connection through DHCP scope options.

Recently I was able to setup option 135 in my DHCP scope to append the DNS suffix, the next part I need to accomplish is setting the DNS suffix for this connection also through DHCP.  

We are running windows 7 with Server 2008 as the DHCP server.  

Please let me know if there is away to set this through DHCP, really don't want to set manually or through GPO.

Option 135 sets your DNS Suffix search order.
Your DNS Domain Name is set by option 15

From what you're saying it's been configured on your DHCP server, but your DHCP clients aren't seeing this option yet?

If you've added the settings, you need to restart your DHCP Service before the options becomes available.

I was able to append these DNS suffix through DHCP but not able to assign the DNS suffix for this connection.  They are two different areas.  

I will attach a photo to make it clear, the one with the big black arrow is the one I want to assign through DHCP.  Thanks for your assistance

Thanks for the info, what your saying is option 15 is accomplishing the same thing as listing my domain in DNS suffix for this connection?
