Configuring DNS

A DNS server is used to resolve domain names of file systems. The DNS server IP address is 100.125.4.25.

By default, the IP address of the DNS server used to resolve domain names of file systems is automatically configured on ECSs when creating ECSs. No manual configuration is needed except when the resolution fails due to a change in the DNS server IP address.

Windows 2012 is used as an example in the operation procedures for Windows.

Procedure (Linux)

  1. Log in to the ECS as user root.
  2. Run the vi /etc/resolv.conf command to edit the /etc/resolv.conf file. Add the DNS server IP address above the existing name server information, as shown in Figure 1.

    Figure 1 Configuring DNS
    The format is as follows:
    nameserver 100.125.4.25

  3. Press Esc, input :wq, and press Enter to save the changes and exit the vi editor.
  4. Run the following command to check whether the IP address is successfully added:

    cat /etc/resolv.conf

  5. Run the following command to check whether an IP address can be resolved from the file system domain name.

    nslookup File system domain name

    NOTE:

    Obtain the file system domain name from the file system shared path.

  6. (Optional) In a network environment with the DHCP service, edit the /etc/resolv.conf file to prevent the file from being automatically modified upon an ECS startup, and prevent the DNS server IP address added in 2 from being reset.

    1. Run the following command to lock the file:
      chattr +i /etc/resolv.conf
      NOTE:

      Run the chattr -i /etc/resolv.conf command to unlock the file if needed.

    2. Run the following command to check whether the editing is successful.

      lsattr /etc/resolv.conf

      If a command output similar to Figure 2 is displayed, the file has been locked.
