Linux /etc/resolv.conf equivalent in Windows 8 to add Domain Suffixes
To add search domain names to resolve in Linux, I can simple add them to /etc/resolv.conf file. But what about in Windows 8? Follow these simple steps to add search domain names in Windows 8.
- Find your network adapter in Network Connections. In my case, I’m using Wi-Fi adapter.
- Right click on it and go to Properties.
- Select TCP/IPv4 and click on Properties.
- Under General tab, click on Advanced. This will open Advanced TCP/IP Settings window
- Check on Append these DNS suffixes(in order) and click on Add…
- Add one or multiple domain suffix. And click OK in all previous windows you just opened in a chain (oh the beauty of Windows legacy systems).
This should take effect right away. If it doesn’t, you have the option to reboot, or just switch to Linux 😉
