Run DNS FLush

09/20/2013 5426 views

We are having problems with DNS and we need to run DNS flush from command line to flush the DNS on local PCs. IS there a way to run this command through Kace. Can we do it silently?

c:> ipconfig /flushdns

You can do this with a kscript. I'd suggest using an online kscript and running this using "Run As" and provide an admin user if some of your end users do not have admin rights. I'm not aware of any way to make it silent.

Under "On Success", use the "Launch a program" option.

Directory: C:\Windows\System32

File: ipconfig.exe

Parameters: /flushdns

You might need to put the parameter in the File line, I don't remember for sure.

  • According to this, you may be able to pipe your output to "nul" and have it be silent: http://www.neowin.net/forum/topic/414035-ipconfig-question/
