Aruba switches ip dns server-address command

Do a switch needs to setup with ip dns server-address command? Do we need this on every switch? What is the significance of it? Where we have to use this?

It is only if you want to have DNS resolution on the switch

for example for ping with this setting, you can use ping www.example.com

Re: Aruba switches ip dns server-address command

Hi Nick,

As Alexis said, you need it whe resolving a name to an IP address.

If your switch will work with Aruba Central, for example, it will need to connect to Aruba Central Service, and your switch will have to resolve the name of the Aruba Central server to connect.

So, your switch will needs the DNS server configured if it will connect to a server on Internet using the name of the server. All switches with this need will need to have the DNS server configured, otherwise, they will have problems to connect.
