ProcedureHow to Display IPv6 Name Service Information

You can use the nslookup command to display IPv6 name service information.

  1. Under your user account, run the nslookup command.

    % /usr/sbin/nslookup

    The default server name and address appear, followed by the nslookup command's angle bracket prompt.

  2. View information about a particular host by typing the following commands at the angle bracket prompt:

    >set q=any
  3. Type the following command to view only AAAA records:

    >set q=AAAA
  4. Quit the nslookup command by typing exit.
