Changes TCP/IP-based name service configuration on a host.
chnamsv [ -a"Attribute=Value ..." | -A FileName ]
The chnamsv high-level command changes a TCP/IP-based name service configuration on a host. The command changes the /etc/resolv.conf file only. The command does not change the name server database.
If you change the name service configuration for a client, the chnamsv command calls the namerslv low-level command to change the resolv.conf configuration file appropriately.
You can use the Web-based System Manager Network application (wsm network fast path) run this command. You could also use the System Management Interface Tool (SMIT) smit namerslv fast path to run this command.
|-A FileName||Specifies name of file containing the named server initialization information.|
|-a"Attribute=Value..."|| Specifies a list of attributes and their corresponding values to be used for updating the named server initialization files in the database.
Attributes can be either of the following:
chnamsv -a"domain=austin.century.com nameserver=22.214.171.124"In this example the domain name and name server address are updated. The previous domain and name server are overwritten.
chnamsv -A namsv.fileIn this example, the file that contains the updated information is namsv.file .
|Contains DOMAIN name server information for local resolver routines.|
