Two nameservers needed
Posted on 2001-06-20
I have two nameservers that I need to access on my machines. I want to access the primary one first, and if it can't resolve the name, use the secondary nameserver. I don't want to EVER use the secondary server unless the name can't be resolved through the primary server. The way I think the nameservers work is that they only access the secondary server if the primary times out, so if the primary server is alive, the secondary server will never be accessed (which isn't what I want). Is there a way for me to configure my machines to try the primary server, then if the name isn't found, try the secondary server? I'm running WinNT, Win2K, & Solaris 7.
