How to Display IPv6 Name Service Information

In this procedure, you use the nslookup command to display IPv6 name service information.

  1. On the command line, type the following command:

    % /usr/sbin/nslookup

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

  2. To see information about a particular host, type the following commands at the angle bracket prompt:

    >set q=any
  3. To see only AAAA records, type the following command at the angle bracket prompt:

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

vallejo.ipv6.eng.apex.com      IPv6 address = 2::9256:a00:fe12:528
