EnableDNS method of the Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration class

The EnableDNS WMI class static method enables the Domain Name System (DNS) for service.

This topic uses the Managed Object Format (MOF) syntax. For more information about using this method, see Calling a Method.

Syntax


uint32 EnableDNS(
  [in, optional]  string DNSHostName,
  [in, optional]  string DNSDomain,
  [in, optional]  string DNSServerSearchOrder[],
  [in, optional]  string DNSDomainSuffixSearchOrder[]
);

Parameters

DNSHostName [in, optional]

Name of the DNS host that this method enables.

Example: "corpdns"

DNSDomain [in, optional]

Represents an organization name followed by a period and an extension that indicates the type of organization.

Example: "microsoft.com"

DNSServerSearchOrder [in, optional]

List of server IP addresses to query for DNS servers.

DNSDomainSuffixSearchOrder [in, optional]

DNS domain suffix that is appended to a host name during name resolution. When resolving a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) from a host-only name, the system appends the local domain name. If the name resolution is not successful, the system uses the domain suffix list to create additional FQDNs in the order listed, and then queries DNS servers for each one.
