Static DNS

Related Concepts

Static DNS is implemented based on the static domain name resolution table. The mapping between domain names and IP addresses recorded in the table is manually configured. You can add some common domain names to the table to facilitate resolution efficiency.


Static domain name resolution requires a static domain name resolution table, which lists the mapping created manually between domain names and IP addresses. The table contains commonly used domain names. After searching for a specified domain name in the resolution table, clients can obtain the IP address mapped to it. This process improves domain name resolution efficiency.

Usage Scenario

If HUAWEI NetEngine 8000 F Series device functioning as a DNS client seldom uses domain names to access other devices or no DNS server is available, you can configure static DNS on the device to resolve domain names.


If there are not many hosts accessed by Telnet applications and the hosts do not change frequently, using static DNS improves resolution efficiency.
