We have added DNS entries in multiple servers however we didn't perform dns flush.

We need script through which we can perform ipconfig /dnsflush  & ipconfig /dnsregister commands on multiple servers at once.

If you have winrm running and PS in your envrionment:
gc serverlist.txt | % {
invoke-command -computername $_ -scriptblock {
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
}
}

Open in new window


if you do not and you have psexec:
 for /f %a in (serverlist.txt) do psexec \\%a cmd /c ipconfig /flushdns & ipconfig /registerdns

Did either of the above commands work for you ?

If you have issues running psexec, it could be permissions issues and you need to add username and password:
e.g.

 for /f %a in (serverlist.txt) do psexec -u domain\user -p password \\%a cmd /c ipconfig /flushdns & ipconfig /registerdns
