Configuring name service resolution order
To configure the order of the name services that a client will
use for resolving domain names and IP addresses:
Services Name resolution order
in the Client Manager.
Select a service from the Available services list, and click on
Add to add it to the Configured services list.
To remove a configured service, select it
from the Configured services list,
and click on Remove.
The list of configured services is in the order in which they will be tried
when a client tries to resolve a hostname or IP address.
If necessary, use Promote and Demote to change the
order of the services.
The default order is NIS, /etc/hosts, and DNS.
Click on OK to exit.
This procedure modifies the file /etc/resolv.conf.
If the file does not exist, the Client Manager creates
it upon exit when name service resolution order values are
for a description of the format of this file.
Some client applications may choose to ignore the specified order,
and use their preferred method for name resolution instead.
