Pushing Static DNS IP Settings Windows Servers / Clients.


Scenario

One of the typical situations were customers are not using DHCP addressing mode and rely on static ip addressing mode for there servers in their datacenter. Over a period of time administrator has decided to provide new DNS IP Settings for all those servers in the datacenter which are having only static IP addresses.

What are the possible ways to achieve this ?

The possible solution / closest solution I would think about is to use the following

Scripting:

Netsh int ip set dnsservers “local area connection” static <ip> primary

Netsh int ip add dns “local area connection” <ip>

Local GPO :
