How Do I Find My DNS Server on Windows Server 2003?


Angela Bailey

Are you running a Windows Server 2003 and need to find your DNS server? Look no further!

In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps to quickly locate your DNS server. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Open the Command Prompt

To begin, open the Command Prompt by pressing the Windows key + R, typing cmd, and hitting Enter. This will launch the Command Prompt window.

Step 2: Run the ipconfig/all command

In the Command Prompt window, type ipconfig/all and press Enter. This command will display detailed information about your network connections.


If you are logged in as a standard user, you might need to run the Command Prompt as an administrator. To do this, right-click on the Command Prompt icon and select “Run as administrator”.

Step 3: Locate the DNS Server address

Scroll through the information displayed in the Command Prompt window until you find a section labeled “Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection” or “Ethernet adapter Ethernet”. Under this section, look for a line that starts with “DNS Servers”. The IP address listed next to it is your DNS server address.

  • Note:
    • If you have multiple network adapters or connections, there may be multiple sections labeled “Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection” or “Ethernet adapter Ethernet”. Make sure to locate the correct section associated with your active network connection.
    • If you see multiple IP addresses listed next to “DNS Servers”, each IP address represents a separate DNS server. You can use any of these addresses to configure your device’s DNS settings.

Step 4: Exit the Command Prompt

Once you have located your DNS server address, you can close the Command Prompt window by typing exit and pressing Enter.

Congratulations! You have successfully found your DNS server on Windows Server 2003. Now you can use this information to configure your network settings or troubleshoot any DNS-related issues.
