Following yesterdays post there are a couple of other cmdlets worth looking at if you want to dig into the DNS settings on your client machines.

Get-DnsClient wil show you the DNS relsted settings for all of your network interfaces by default.  To investigate a single interface

 

£> Get-DnsClient -InterfaceAlias vEthernet* | fl
InterfaceAlias                     : vEthernet (External01)
InterfaceIndex                     : 20
ConnectionSpecificSuffix           :
ConnectionSpecificSuffixSearchList : {}
RegisterThisConnectionsAddress     : True
UseSuffixWhenRegistering           : False

InterfaceAlias                     : vEthernet (Internal01)
InterfaceIndex                     : 16
ConnectionSpecificSuffix           :
ConnectionSpecificSuffixSearchList : {}
RegisterThisConnectionsAddress     : True
UseSuffixWhenRegistering           : False

 

You can also see the DNS servers a particular interface will use:

£> Get-DnsClientServerAddress -InterfaceAlias vEthernet*

InterfaceAlias               Interface Address ServerAddresses
Index     Family
————–               ——— ——- —————
vEthernet (External01)              20 IPv4    {192.168.0.1}
vEthernet (External01)              20 IPv6    {}
vEthernet (Internal01)              16 IPv4    {}
vEthernet (Internal01)              16 IPv6    {fec0:0:0:ffff::1, fec0:0:0:ffff::2, fec0:0:0:ffff::3}
