Defines the DNS servers to which a computer sends queries when it attempts to resolve names. This policy setting supersedes the list of DNS servers configured locally and those configured using DHCP.
To use this policy setting, click Enabled, and then enter a space-delimited list of IP addresses in the available field. To use this policy setting, you must enter at least one IP address.
If you enable this policy setting, the list of DNS servers is applied to all network connections used by computers that receive this policy setting.
If you disable this policy setting, or if you do not configure this policy setting, computers will use the local or DHCP supplied list of DNS servers, if configured.
