Get-DnsClientGlobalSetting

Retrieves global DNS client settings like the suffix search list.

Syntax

Get-DnsClientGlobalSetting
   [-CimSession <CimSession[]>]
   [-ThrottleLimit <Int32>]
   [-AsJob]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Get-DnsClientGlobalSetting cmdlet retrieves DNS client settings that are global, that are not associated with a specific interface. The settings affect the behavior of the DNS client across all of the interfaces.

Examples

EXAMPLE 1

PS C:\>Get-DnsClientGlobalSetting
UseSuffixSearchList : True 
SuffixSearchList    : {corp.contoso.com, na.corp.contoso.com} 
UseDevolution       : True 
DevolutionLevel     : 0

This example gets all of the global DNS client settings.

EXAMPLE 2

PS C:\>$dnsCGSetting = Get-DnsClientGlobalSetting



PS C:\>$dnsCGSetting.SuffixSearchList
corp.contoso.com 
na.corp.contoso.com

This example gets the connection-specific suffixes. The first item in the list is the primary DNS suffix, if configured.
