Examples

The Modify the DNS Suffix Search Order for All Network Adapters VBScript code sample configures a computer to use two DNS suffixes when performing DNS searches.

The Enable DHCP Settings on a Computer VBScript sample configures all the settings typically required to enable DHCP on a computer.

The following PowerShell code sets the DNS suffix search order.


#First store the suffixes to set in a variable
$suffixes = 'microsoft.com', 'google.com', 'yahoo.com'

#Since this is a static method, get a class object and then call the method. 
$class = [wmiclass]'Win32_NetworkAdapterConfiguration'
$class.SetDNSSuffixSearchOrder($suffixes)
