Configuring a DNS Client

DNS has two parts: a service that provides answers and a client that queries the service. This procedure assumes that the DNS server is already configured and operational.

The steps here apply only to configuring DNS on a client host. For server configuration instructions, see Administering DNS in Working With Oracle Solaris 11.4 Directory and Naming Services: DNS and NIS.


Note -  LDAP configuration for naming services is not covered in this document. Like DNS, preparing LDAP involves both servers and clients and is fully described in Working With Oracle Solaris 11.4 Directory and Naming Services: LDAP.
