This happened at a client and now onsite at our office, I am trying to get presence analytics working and just confirming the settings of the radio profiles and without making changes saved them. 

Then our devices shows an audit mismatch and this is what it wants to update:

dns server-ip 168.143.87.77
dns server-ip 209.128.124.9 second

And these are not our DNS server, don't know where they are coming from.
On client Hive we experiencing the same, what is happening?

Hi George,

That looks like the default DNS policy is back in place on the Network Policy. Can you check what object is selected on your Network Policy under "Additional Settings > Management Server Settings > DNS Server"? All on-premise HiveManagers and HMOL accounts have a default DNS server object that is created with those two DNS servers, so I would just check the obvious and ensure that object is not in use.

Hope this helps

Yes, it is the default one created with the Network policy.
Will clone it and change it to our internal DNS Servers.
Thanks Brian.
