Force DNS to use TCP

Force all DNS requests to use TCP rather than UDP.

The initial size of the buffer is determined by the Set DNS UDP buffer size group policy (if you have enabled it), but the size will be increased, if necessary, for a specific response.

This group policy modifies the dns.forcetcp setting in the Centrify DirectControl configuration file.
