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
- 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.
