How to switch faster between some dns servers

How to switch faster between some dns servers

Hi all,

we have some dns servers and in case of an unrechable system we try a option to switch faster between two dns servers.

# the ones we using primary :
10.101.1.5
10.101.1.6
# and then the backups :
192.168.2.1
192.168.2.2

Is there a option to switch faster to another dns server if the first fails? Does anyone know the switching time by default?

Regards,

frank

Re: How to switch faster between some dns servers

See 'man resolv.conf'.
There are options for retry and so on ...
