In a large environment where you have hundreds of servers, imagine now having to go and manually add in more than 2 DNS servers to each of those? That will take a few days or weeks.

With PowerShell you can do this and you can randomize the order or each server so that one DNS server does not take all the load.

I created a script that firstly looks at the features installed, for example if the server holds a DNS role then it will exit.

You can change this to a domain controller as well if you don’t want to perform this.

Here is a snippet of the script:
