Adds a domain suffix to the domain suffix list or a name server to the available server list for the DNS client.
The domain suffix list can include up to six items.
If the use of all previous names fails to resolve a name, the most recently added entry on the domain suffix list will be the last name used during name resolution. This command will not overwrite any exiting entries. If a null string is used as the last suffix in the list, and all other lookups fail, the name resolver will attempt to look up the name with no suffix.
Up to eight DNS name servers can be configured. The default value for the virtual router used by the DNS client option is VR-Default.
The following command configures a domain name and adds it to the domain suffix list:
configure dns-client add domain-suffix xyz_inc.com
The following command specifies that the switch use the DNS server 10.1.2.1:
configure dns-client add name-server 10.1.2.1
This command was first available in ExtremeXOS 10.1.
This command is available on ExtremeSwitching 5320, 5420, 5520, and 5720 series switches.
