Solairs DNS: configure forward DNS server, to send queries to external server

If you have an internal domain and an internal name server which has only local hosts. He wants these clients’ requests to be forwarded to the outside nameserver if the local server doesn’t have that information.

This can be done on the internal name server by defining a forwarders entry in the named configuration file:


For BIND 4.9.4 (Solaris 2.x and below)

in the /etc/named.boot file

forwarders ipaddress-of-the-externalnameserver

For BIND 8.1.2 (Solaris 7)

in the /etc/named.conf file, add to your options list:

options {

[ forwarders { [ in_addr ; [ in_addr ; … ] ] }; ]

};
