Global Protect DNS Suffix Not Propogating to Client



I have a strange issue where my Global Protect SSL Client connects to the firewall with no issues.  I get the IP, the routes and the DNS servers but I don't get anything listed in the DNS Suffix entry.  I have configured the DNS Suffix correctly under 'Global Protect Gateway', 'Client Configuration', 'Network Settings' and can even see the DNS Suffix being received from the agent during my agent debug when trying to connect but nothing shows up in IPCONFIG.


Any ideas?

Try this:


> Run gpedit.msc

> Browse Local Computer Policy

> Computer Configuration

Administrative Templates -> Network -> DNS Client

Enable "Allow DNS Suffix Appending to Unqualified Multi-Label Name Queries"


Please let me know if this helps

Do you have the domain listed under the radius profile?


Device->Server Profiles-> RADIUS


Then see if the domain is listed there. This did the trick for me.

Unfortunately no difference

Hi MHaran,


did you search Windows logs? Could it be that some other software is protecting / preventing GP Agent to set DNS suffix to the system? Is your GP Agent running as a service as well on that Windows host? What is the version of Windows you are having as hosts?

Did you had a chance to look at


If this is already verified, could you check if the issue is specific to any Client OS/ GP version?
