Hi Guys,

I have this code to define the dns server:

$wmi = Get-WmiObject win32_networkadapterconfiguration -filter "ipenabled = 'true'"

$wmi.EnableStatic("10.0.0.15", "255.255.255.0")

$wmi.SetGateways("10.0.0.1", 1)

$wmi.SetDNSServerSearchOrder("10.0.0.100")


However I also need to specify the alternative dns server ideally using powershell,l how can I do this?

thank you in advance.
