/etc/resolv.conf [URGENT]

After you made a change on /etc/resolv.conf, do we need to cycle/start anything to make the change in effect?

If you're unsure you can use "smitty tcpip" to configure the basic TCP/IP. You could also use "mktcpip" command (see man for parameters).

An update on /etc/resolv.conf file takes effect immediately. If you´re not sure
what dns server you´re actually using, try "nslookup"; this command must show
the name server ip address that the OS will try to use to resolve a name.
