Configure DNS lookups from the terminal
Authored by: hexghost on Jul 05, '05 01:29:20PM

I believe if you have flat files configured as an option in directory access, that /etc/resolv.conf should work fine (it does for me). You just need to do a sudo killall -1 lookupd when you make changes, to force lookupd to reread the files.

We tried this, it didn't work.

The FFAgent for lookupd reads a whole bunch of files (listed in the lookupd man page) but not /etc/resolv.conf.
