Hi,

 

Step 1: Open /etc/resolv.conf file:

# vi /etc/resolv.conf


Step 2: Add your DNS nameserver as follows:

search isp.com
nameserver <ipaddress>
nameserver <ipaddress>
nameserver <ipaddress>

Note: Maximum three nameserver can be used/defined at a time.

 

Step 3:Test setup using nslookup or dig command:

$ dig www.xyz.com
$ nslookup www.xyz.com
