Managing DNS Settings

The DNS tab allows you to configure the system's hostname, domain, name servers, and search domain. Name servers are used to look up other hosts on the network.

Figure 6-15. DNS Configuration


The name servers section does not configure the system to be a name server.

If the DNS server names are retrieved from DHCP (or retrieved from the ISP of a modem connection) do not add primary, secondary, or tertiary DNS servers.
