You can configure your storage system to use one or more DNS servers for host-name resolution. You can configure DNS by first creating or editing the /etc/resolv.conf file, then specifying the DNS domain name, and finally enabling DNS through the command-line interface.

|Creating the /etc/resolv.conf file||By using a text editor, create the /etc/resolv.conf file in the root volume. The file can consist of up to three lines, each specifying a name server host in the following format:
ip_address is the IP address of the DNS name server. The IP address can be an IPv4 or an IPv6 address.
Note: If an IPv6 link-local address is specified as a DNS name server, the address must be appended with %interface_name. The appended interface_name is the name of the interface on the storage system that is connected to the same link as the specified DNS name server. For example:
e0a is the interface on the storage system that is connected to the same link as the DNS name server with the IPv6 address 2001:0db8::85a3:0:0:8a2e:0370:99.
|Editing the /etc/resolv.conf file||From a workstation that has access to the root volume of your storage system, edit the /etc/resolv.conf file using a text editor.|
domain is the new domain name, which follows the host name of your storage system in the fully qualified domain name.
