Configuring a DNS Client

DNS has two parts: a service that provides answers and a client that queries the service. In Oracle Solaris, the default DNS service is provided by the Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) from the Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) and its associated named server daemon. The DNS client consists of a collection of utilities and libraries.
