Configure DNS for Static Clients
Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2
To configure Domain Name System (DNS) for clients with statically configured IP addresses, you usually configure the following:
DNS host name (or names) for the client computer.
Primary and alternate DNS servers that the client uses to assist in resolving DNS domain names.
A list of DNS suffixes to be appended for use in completing unqualified DNS names, which are used for searching and submitting DNS queries at the client for resolution.
Connection-specific dynamic update and registration behavior, such as whether specific network adapters that are installed at the client dynamically register their configured IP addresses with a DNS server.
For more information about how to configure DNS for static clients, see the applicable TCP/IP or DNS client documentation that is provided by the appropriate vendor for these clients.
