You may use the following commands at a Microsoft Windows PowerShell to configure a default domain name system (DNS) server, for that instance, as well specify the type(s) of DNS records to resolve. This may be used for daily support of DNS.

  1. nslookup
  2. serverĀ <<<IP ADDRESS>>>
  3. set type=<<<DNS RECORD>>>
  4. domain.com

For example, if you wanted to configure the nslookup session to utilize a Google public DNS server (google-public-dns-a.google.com) and query the domain google.com for all DNS records you would enter the following commands.

  1. nslookup
  2. server 8.8.8.8
  3. set type=all
  4. google.com
