Two IPs can be assigned for system DNS. It is not possible to add more than 2 DNS IPs.

Hi @siberprime

 

It is possible to add 2 more as alternatives DNS servers in the CLI. Please refer to https://community.fortinet.com/t5/FortiGate/Technical-Tip-FortiGate-alt-primary-alt-secondary-DNS-se...

 

Regards,

Please note (as mentioned in the KB) that the alternative servers are ONLY queried if the two other DNS servers are unable to resolve the hostname and return this response; they are NOT queried in case of a timeout.
