⟩ How to Successfully resolve to server1.example.com where your DNS server is 172.24.254.254

DNS is the Domain Name System, which maintains a database that can help your

computer translate domain names such as www.redhat.com to IP addresses such as

216.148.218.197. As no individual DNS server is large enough to keep a database for the

entire Internet, they can refer requests to other DNS servers.

DNS is based on the named daemon, which is built on the BIND (Berkeley Internet

Name Domain) package developed through the Internet Software Consortium

Users wants to access by name so DNS will interpret the name into ip address. You need

to specify the Address if DNS server in each and every client machine. In Redhat

Enterprise Linux, you need to specify the DNS server into /etc/resolv.conf file.

After Specifying the DNS server address, you can verify using host, dig and nslookup

commands.
