How to Troubleshoot DNS Client Issues

In Oracle Solaris 11.4, you do not edit the /etc/resolv.conf file directly to make persistent changes to a DNS client. All DNS client configuration is managed by the dns/client SMF service instance. For information about how to enable a DNS client, see How to Configure a DNS Client in Oracle Solaris in Configuring and Managing Network Components in Oracle Solaris 11.4.

  1. Check the status of the DNS service.
    # svcs -xv dns/client:default
  2. Check the DNS client service log.
    # more /var/svc/log/network-dns-client:default.log
  3. Check the name server settings.
    # svcprop -p config/nameserver dns/client
  4. Check the search settings.
    # svcprop -p config/search dns/client
  5. Check all DNS settings.
    # svcprop -p config dns/client
