Configuring DNS Servers

Configuring DNS Servers

This chapter includes the following sections:

DNS Servers in Cisco UCS

You need to specify an external DNS server for each Cisco UCS instance to use if the system requires name resolution of hostnames. For example, you cannot use a name such as www.cisco.com when you are configuring a setting on a fabric interconnect if you do not configure a DNS server. You would need to use the IP address of the server.
