VMS version of /etc/resolv.conf

Hi

Can anyone tell me if and what there is an equivalence of the file /etc/resolv.conf available for Open VMS ?

Thanks

Jeff,
VMS doesn't use text file (as /etc/resolv.conf) to configure system; if you want configure you have use the relative command.
If I remember /etc/resolv.conf is a TCP/IP configuration file, so you could use TCPIP command.
$ TCPIP
TCPIP> HELP

If you explain the scope of resolv.conf I can tell you the command to use.

Re: VMS version of /etc/resolv.conf

depends on which TCP/IP stack you are using. If this file contains name resolver configuration then UCX SHOW NAME will display the details for TCP/IP Services for OpenVMS and UCX SET NAME will change them (see help for details on syntax).

Re: VMS version of /etc/resolv.conf

Hi,

the safest way to change the Name resolving is to execute

@sys$manager:tcpip$config

->Core components
->Bind resolver

Else from inside tcpip

set config name is the command to change name resolving

do a help set config name for details.

Hi

OK the scope of resolv.conf is to configure the host server to point to the DNS servers.

I this file are the ip addresses and other configuration parameters

Hi,

give command $UCX SHO NAME or $TCPIP SHO NAME to get the list of DNS server defined on your system.

Re: VMS version of /etc/resolv.conf

I think what you require is in TCPIP$BIND:BIND.CONF, BIND needs to be setup first the way Martin pointed out.
@sys$system:tcpip$bind_setup.com will give you the more options to set it all up.
For the resolver, see http://h71000.www7.hp.com/doc/732FINAL/6524/6524pro_003.html#heading_3.3.4.5

Re: VMS version of /etc/resolv.conf

Jeff,

We got (I seem to remember: since the installation of TCPIP V5) a file SYS$SYSTEM:TCPIP$RESOLV.CONF, which to me looks like what you are seeking.
Obviously this implies that it is a file that comes with "TCPIP services for OpenVMS", so if you got an other IP stack, this will probably not apply.

Re: VMS version of /etc/resolv.conf

Hi

Thanks for all the replies. I have the version of TCPIP on my VMS system which is described by Ian so I will be using that.
