    Try starting with these:

    http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/systems/scope/aix/topic/com.ibm.aix.commadmn/doc/commadmndita/HT_commadmn_configure_dns.htm

    http://www.dns.net/

    I would also recommend the O'Reilly book - DNS and BIND.

    The configuration of DNS reference is a "system wide configuration" and doesn't matter how many adapters on IP address configured on your server.

    You have to point the entries in /etc/resolv.conf file to your DNS server

    noted on system wide configuration.

    dear sir,
    additional question:
    do we need to register our hmc, vio servers and nim server to dns server? do we need to make configuration at hmc, vio and nim server level. many thanks in advance
