Are you using DHCP? If so, you already have two DNS, and the second one already works as a backup. Do you mean two static DNS? If so, the two DNS are what ever you set them to under Windows + R > NCPA.CPL > Right click network adapter in use and left click properties > Double click on "Internet Protocol Version 4"

"Are you using DHCP? If so, you already have two DNS"

 

Why do you think that?  DHCP has nothing to do with DNS.  You never clarified what the poster was asking for, like are they running AD or is this just workstation related?

How do you figure DNS has nothing to do with DHCP? Automatic DNS is standard in the Microsoft IPv4 protocol. You are questioning me, so the burden of proof is on you.  :devil:

Maybe we are reading the question differently.

 

" if you have one dns server, can you have another dns server so , that if one goes down the other pickup automatically"

 

The question I see is one of dns server redundancy /replication which has nothing to do with dhcp.

 

"Are you using DHCP? If so, you already have two DNS"

 

I take this to say if you are on a workstation and need redundant dns's and you are using dhcp then the two ip dns entries on the workstation would be filled.

This assumes the dhcp server was configured with two dns servers or was configured for a private and then a public dns server.

 

We don't know if automatic dns is in the mix.  We don't know if this is a AD environment and the system is configured for dhcp to update the dns record.
