Command Mode
Usage Information
OS10 does not support sending DNS queries over a VLAN. DNS queries are sent out on all other interfaces, including the Management port. You can separately configure both IPv4 and IPv6 domain name servers. In a dual stack setup, the system sends both A (request for IPv4) and AAAA (request for IPv6) record requests to a DNS server even if you only configure this command. The no version of this command removes the IP name-server configuration.
OS10(config)# ip name-server
