Configuring access to a DNS server

To be able to translate host names (such as www.example.com) to IP addresses (such as 192.0.2.3), the system must be able to access a DNS server.

Specify a DNS server

In the example, the DNS server is at the 12.34.56.100 IP address. Add the DNS server by using the set system name-server command.
