Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 DNS client changes

The primary change is support for computers with more than one network adapter card.  The DNS client is optimized for multi-honed computers in 2 different ways.

  1. If a DNS server address is configured to a specific interface the client will bind to this interface and send the DNS queries to this DNS server.
  2. If Group Policy is used to configure DNS client IP address from a Name Resolution Policy Table (NRPT) the client will not use the IP address bound to the NIC configuration.

These changes are for computer running either Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 Operating Systems.

Until Next Time, RIDE SAFE!
