Updating/changing DNS on Server 2008 R2
Posted on 2014-07-24
We recently received our updated ip, dns settings from our service provider to update on our server etc. I have a few questions however.
- Can I just change this on the adapter settings, and then the advanced/dns tab to add in new settings? Or do I have to fully reconfigure DNS on the server?
Things are setup like this currently:
Cable Modem > Router > Switches.
Router is 192.168.0.1
Server is 192.168.0.2 and handles DHCP for the office building etc.
Server subnet: 255.255.255.0
Server DNS: 126.96.36.199 and 192.168.0.2 and under advanced dns tab also 188.8.131.52
The new information that has been given to me is a static ip. But not sure if that is based on our ISP box but I assume it is. And then a different gateway, and two different dns.
So I suppose it all goes back to my questions of, can these changes just be made on the adapter or do I need to do more work and include any of it on the router? (currently router is just basically default settings so I don't think I need do anything there as I haven't in the past)
