How to get information from DNS name servers

Aruba Employee

A great tool to query DNS information is nslookup which is part of the Bind-utils package. This tool will provide you with the IP addresses for given host names or a host name for a given IP address. To install run the following command.

# yum install bind

Once installed, you can query a DNS name server like this.

# nslookup www.google.com
# nslookup 10.51.3.10
