Domain Name Service Client Services
The Domain Name Service (DNS) client augments the following commands to allow them to accept either IP addresses or host names.
- download bootrom
- download image
- configure radius server client-ip
- configure tacacs server client-ip
- create cfm domain dns md-level
The DNS client can resolve host names to both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. In addition, you can use the nslookup utility to return the IP address of a host name.
Use the following command to specify up to eight DNS servers for use by the DNS client:
Use the following command to specify a default domain for use when a host name is used without a domain.
configure dns-client default-domain
For example, if you specify the domain xyz-inc.com as the default domain, then a command such as ping accounting1 is taken as if it had been entered ping accounting1.xyz-inc.com.
