Manually set your Preferred DNS Server to be a Windows Domain Controller

You want to set your computers primary DNS server to be your network’s Windows Domain Controller. This is most often done in a static IP configuration setup; DHCP will normally do this properly for you.

Solution

This is done using the network adaptor settings.

  1. Run ncpa.cpl from a run box
  2. Launch the appropriate network adapter’s properties, e.g. Local Area Connection, Ethernet, etc…
  3. Choose Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) and click Properties
  4. Under Preferred DNS server: enter the IP address of the Domain Controller then click OK
  5. Click OK
