Workstations DNS is Server IP Address

    Question

  • Server: Windows Server 2012R2 Essentials

    The network workstations are getting a single DNS entry that is the IP of the server.  All workstations should get DHCP and DNS from the Cisco router.

    How do I turn off this server IP address from going to the workstations which then doesn't resolve?

    Thanks,

    Darryl

  • dhcp is handled by the router; the router also has the static dns entries as a number of access points are used; even the server gets its own IP address for DNS

  • Hi,

    TPC/IP Parameters are assigned by your router(Cisco) – which is used as DHCP server. In general, the IP address of a DNS Server (TCP/IP Properties) is assigned to client using DHCP option.

    As Windows Server DHCP server, we can specifies the IP address of a DNS server that is available to a DHCP client using DHCP option 6 (DNS Server). And, we can use Reservations to assign TCP/IP parameters to specific client via its MAC address.

    As the router you has used is a 3rd party product manufactured by companies that is independent of Microsoft. We are not familiar with the detail configurations. You may contact the product’s official supporter and confirm with them about the functions.
