Configure DNS

You must configure your edge node to perform forward and reverse DNS lookups with your COD. Obtain the private IP address of your CDP environment and configure your edge node to resolve hostnames from your COD. An edge node must resolve the hostnames from your COD.

Each CDP environment acts as its own DNS nameserver. Obtain the private IP address information of your environment and configure resov.conf on your edge node to list your CDP environment's private IP address as a nameserver.

  1. Go to the Management Console.
  2. Click Environments and select your environment from the list.
  3. Click Summary.
  4. Find the FreeIPA section and copy the contents of the Private IP field.
  5. Add the private IP address as a nameserver to the /etc/resolv.conf file in your edge node. You can do this using the cat resov.conf nameserver [***NAMESERVER IP ADDRESS***] command.
