Re: DNS server configuration on HP-UX 11.31

What exactly do you need?

 

Do you need to set the server up so it can talk to a DNS server and resolve names / IP addresses?  If so, then you need to configure the /etc/resolv.conf and /etc/nsswitch.conf files.

 

Do you need to set the server up so it is a DNS server itself?  If so, what version of BIND are you running?  

 

There is really no difference in setting up BIND on HP-UX vs. other types of Unix.  My best advice is to find a manual for BIND and start reading.
