Here's a quickie for any dns person out there...

Where is the setting on server 08 to tell the server to assign specific DNS server IP address to clients?

For example, on my clients 'ipconfig':
Ethernet Controller
        Dhcp Enabled. . . . . . . . . . . : Yes
        Autoconfiguration Enabled . . . . : Yes
        IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 172.20.50.13
        Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.0.0
        Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 172.20.1.1
        DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 172.20.3.50
        DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 172.20.3.5
                                            172.20.3.4
                                            172.30.1.2

Where is the setting that tells the client to use 172.20.3.5, 3.4, and 1.2 as its DNS servers? I need to change that setting and im blanking out right now...

thanks!

This setting is controlled at the server DHCP Scope option.

From the primary server, go to Start - Administrative Tools - DHCP
