DNS Issue-workstations not updating new DNS settings

Our firewall does DHCP and I set the DNS servers to be the two domain controllers.

DNS used to be set to both the domain controllers and to our ISP providers DNS servers.  I changed it to only the domain controllers and use forwarders for addresses outside the LAN.

I flushed DNS on workstations and did a release/renew on the network card, rebooted and an ipconfig still shows the isp external DNS servers.

I checked the firewall and it only has internal domain controllers/dns servers listed.

How can I get workstations to only show internal DNS servers in ipconfig?

Thanks,

cja

How long are the DHCP leases set for on your firewall?  Maybe purge that lease, then renew and see if it gets the correct DNS ip's.

Your suggestion led me to another settings page on the firewall that still had external DNS servers listed.  I made the changes, all good now.  Thanks
