service dns forwarding system

Specifies DNS forwarding to system-configured name servers.

set service dns forwarding system
delete service dns forwarding system
show service dns forwarding

Configuration mode

service {
	dns {
		forwarding {

Use this command to direct the system to forward DNS requests to name servers that are statically configured by using the system name-server command.

By default, the DNS forwarding service forwards DNS requests to a pool of name servers that comprises the statically configured name servers plus those of which it was notified by using DHCP. This command overrides the defaults: when this command is used, DNS requests are forwarded to statically configured name servers.

This command can be combined with service dns forwarding dhcp <interface>, service dns forwarding name-server <ipv4>, or both commands to provide a larger pool of candidate name servers.

Use the set form of this command to specify DNS forwarding to system-configured name servers.

Use the delete form of this command to restore the default DNS forwarding behavior.

Use the show form of this command to display the configuration of DNS forwarding.
