DNSDomain

DNSDomain specifies the Domain Name System (DNS) domain to be searched for the name resolution. If DNSDomain is specified in two places as a global parameter (x) and as an interface-specific parameter (y), the two values are concatenated appropriately for each interface (as x, y) and used.

Values

 

Domain_name

Specifies the DNS domain. Domain_name is a string with a maximum length of 255 characters.

This string type does not support empty elements. Do not create an empty value for this setting.
